Irish Resources on-line

Irish On-line resources just keep expanding. One of the latest: -
This portal will link you to archival collections throughout Ireland. Archives are the documents and records that relate to people, places, organisations, and events. You can use this portal to locate archives relating to your area of interest or research topic. The site provides links to 34 archive collections. Essentially the Irish Archives Resource is an “… online database which contains searchable archival descriptions. It does not hold any archives or records but provides a means to search archival descriptions from various contributing institutions”.
But don’t forget: -
From the National Archives Genealogy Website you can access the Census Records for 1901 and 1911, Census survivals for 1821-51, Census Search forms for 1841-51, the Tithe Applotment Books from 1823 to 1837, the Soldiers’ Wills from 1914 to 1917, and the Calendars of Wills and Administrations from 1858 to 1922.
This site will have large numbers of other genealogical records added to it over the coming years, including Valuation Office House and Field Books, 1848 – 60
All of these records are free to access, through searchable databases and linked images of relevant pages. Eventually, the site will contain all of the important and easily accessible genealogical material in the custody of the National Archives
Contains some excellent suggestions, methodology, descriptions and explanations of sources as well as links to tracing your Irish Family History.
This website is operated by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht & provides users with the opportunity to search a wide range of record sources in their search of their Irish Ancestry. It is home to the on-line Indexes of the Civil Registers (GRO) of Births, Marriages, Civil Partnerships and Deaths and to Church Records of Baptism, Marriage and Burial from a number of counties.
