Dublin Metropolitan Police (DMP) Prisoners Books Are Now Online

The Dublin (Ireland) Metropolitan Police (DMP) Prisoners Books for 1905-1908 and 1911-1918 are amongst the most valuable new documents to come to light on the revolutionary decade. They include important information on social and political life in the capital during the last years of the Union, from the period of widespread anticipation of Home Rule, to the advent of the 1913 Lockout, the outbreak of the First World War, the Easter Rising and its aftermath, including the conscription crisis of 1918. They will also be invaluable to those interested in criminology, genealogy, and family history.

Now all we need is for some nice people to transcribe and create a digital index ? FindMyPast, come on down 😉


These are fantastic, and legible! Looking for my Dublin (CITY not COUNTY) family in here!


where I would go to get any info. on any TWISS Garda (Police) throughout Ireland? In the UK they “charge”. Why is Ireland so “closed in” to the idea of letting out information of any sort to researchers?? Thank you. Shannah
