    Default Oireachtas Debates pre-2009 not on their website?

    The Oireachtas site has helpful links to Debates. The search page goes back many years showing a link for each sitting day but clicking on any day prior to 2008 gives this message -

    There is no data available yet for this debate. Please try again later.

    Have they been taken off or were they never uploaded?

    They're definitely there when I open them.

    Are you using the 'Historical Debates' link?

    Default 'Dáil Debates' for 2008 are missing from the Official Site!

    'Dáil Debates' for 2008 are missing from the Official Site!

    Went to check it this morning to see who exactly said what and voted on the Bank bailout and got this:

    30 September 2008

    There is no data available yet for this debate. Please try again later.

    Tithe an Oireachtas - Houses of the Oireachtas

    They are there for 2009 & 2010.

    They say on their Site:

    Dáil and Seanad debates are published incrementally throughout a sitting day.
    Replies to questions tabled by Members for written response by Ministers are published at the end of each day's Dáil


    Is there something up?
