About the Dublin Port Archive

The Dublin Port Archive is an online resource containing searchable databses of handwritten records from old Dublin Port ledgers. Currently the Dublin Port Archive has records from the Dublin Port ‘Name Book’ for employees from 1906 to 1914. This ‘Name Book’ contains information about the dates employees started and finished work with Dublin Port, their occupation and any noteworthy events or occupation changes that occurred with each worker during their employment at the Port.

All search results contain an image of the original page that the information is taken from. As the information from each entry has been handwritten into the ledger, it is possible that some pieces of information were illegible and were unable to be added to the online database. If you have any insights into any of these entries, please feel free to contact us with any corrections or additions to the database.

Also if you have any videos or images that you feel would be relevant to the Dublin Port Archive website and that you would like to see up on the website, please send them on to us and we will review them and add all relevant images or videos to the website. Contribute your content here
