Irish climate stations 1855 to 1960 data rescue

Met Eireann library holds the registers of Irish Meteorological Data from 1855-1960. This consists of 224 bound volumes, 128 folders, c. 353 folios. The data was read daily, with between one and four observations per day depending on f the station. We have started imaging Phoenix Park data and to data have 18 years scanned with another 12 years in the process of being scanned. In collaboration with the Central Statistic Office we are just about to start data entry of all parameters.
