The National Archives is assisting with an academic research project, which is part of an individual student’s Master’s Degree in Economic Science at the Institute of Public Administration. Your participation in this survey would greatly assist this student with his research – response is estimated to take fewer than ten minutes. The survey will be available between 19 February-19 March.
This survey has no direct affiliation to the National Archives of Ireland or any other related body and queries should be raised directly with the student responsible – Stephen Brophy – firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NAIreland. Your participation will be much appreciated.
