Census of Ireland 1911

The 1911 census is one of the most important genealogical resources for tracing Irish family members. This is so as almost all census returns from the 1800s were destroyed in a fire at The Public Records Office during the Civil War in the early 1920s, or pulped for paper during World War I.

The returns show that there were 313 people living in the 32 counties that had the second name Buggy. Only 10 of these counties had people with the name living there, with the majority, 231 people, living in counties Laois and Kilkenny. None of the other 22 counties had people with the name living there. One person, living in Dublin, wrote their census entry in Irish and has listed their name as Ua Bogaig. All others were written in English.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Kilkenny                              145                                                                                                      Laois (Queens)                   86                                                                                    Dublin                                  48                                                                              Waterford                           12                                                                              Kerry                                   8                                                                                                               Carlow                                  7                                                                               Tipperary                            3                                                                                Wicklow                               2                                                                                                           Galway                                 1                                                                                                             Kildare                                 1                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   TOTAL                                 313
