Does the 13th of May 1999 ring a bell? The Public Accounts Committee of that date appears to be disallowed.
Might be nothing. Just wondered.
Update: Thanks to the commenters below for their efforts in relation to the PAC documents. I have been looking at the Foreign Affairs website to see why certain Press Releases appear to have been disallowed. There appears to be no logical order (besides chronologically upwards from 1 or thereabouts) to the archive of the press releases on the current Foreign Affairs website, especially in the early years. I found this one, numerically one above one of those blocked. It relates to the period Ray Burke was Minister for Foreign Affairs.
If you go here http://foreignaffairs.gov.ie/Press_Releases/19970718/318.htm, it seems to follow the logical order that the ASP referral to 317 precedes this release. There are a slew of press releases missing from that period, at least in as far as the archive system seems to be constructed.
At one point it appears the website was moved from one system to another, converting ASP pages into HTML, though my expertise in that is sorely lacking.
Any technical help would be appreciated.
Update 2: I found this quite funny. Apparently Dermot Ahern was not only alive in 1899, he was also the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
