Some Useful Resources for Irish Research

Tithe Applotment List

1901 and 1911 Censuses of Ireland

Griffiths Valuation of Ireland (1850s roughly)

Griffiths Valuation of Ireland (more info)

Emerald Ancestors (commerical but free search)

Flax Growers of Ireland, 1796

Ulster Covenant of 1912

Irish Pension Records
Pensear is a commercial site, but the information can be surprising. We know that the Irish censuses for 1841-1891 were destroyed, but sometimes they are quoted as evidence in the pension applications. e.g. 1851 Willm. THOMPSON 50 head married 1825, Jane 40 wife, Robert 20 son, Andr.18 son, Caty 16 daur, Willm.14 son, Alix.7 son, Jane 5 daur, Ann 24 daur, absent.
