Best Local Free Irish Archival Databases

"God bless you, Section 80 of the Local Government Act, 2001" is John Grenham's verdict on the results of this Irish government initiative for the proper management, custody, care and conservation of local records and local archives.

He points to:

Galway Archives with some wonderful online collections, including 1775 tenants’ lists from the Headford area;
Mayo Library's superb collection of estate maps online, including details of tenants from 1811 in Balla, Kilcolman and Mayo parishes;
Tipperary Studies extraordinary set of 130 Tipperary rate books from the 1840s and early 1850s, predating Griffith and created in parallel with his Valuation.
