It was reported in April that they are technical testing for the upload.

Your getting handed free records at your fingers tips, it's gold dust, give them/him a break.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

I would imagine the thousands of applications from people trying to escape the silliness of Brexit are slowing things up too. The staff have other things to be doing.
It will be updated eventually, though personally, it's the digitisation of the CofI records I am more excited about.
Coffey, Cummins, Cummins [Skirke, Laois], Curran, Dillon [Clare], Fogarty [Garran, Laois/Tipp], Hughes, Keshan (Keeshan), Loughman [Killadooley, Laois], Mallon [Armagh], Malone, Markham [Caherkine, Clare], McKeon(e) [Sligo/Kilkenny/Waterford], McNamara, Meagher, Prescott [Kilkenny/Waterford/Wexford?], Rafferty, Ryan, Sullivan, Tobin

May be free for me, but not for you! "Your tax Euros at work"

As for giving them a break, is it too much to ask that they don't make highly publicized promises which - apparently - they have no intention of meeting?  Much better to say nothing.

Ireland gives too much stuff away FREE...
Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

I'm sure the did intend it to be early 2019, they missed the target. It's Ireland, we expect targets to be missed :D , just be glad your not waiting on the M7 roads works to finish.

The Irish are such kind generous people. Supporting all those expensive German bankers!

We'd all love these records to be released but since they're free, I'll be content with an occasional good-natured moan. That site has saved me 1000s of euro since its launch, and that's just on my personal genealogy.
