NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF IRELAND
There’s a disconnect between the polished National Archives homepage and its more dated-looking genealogy section, but there’s no denying the value of what’s here. The parent site has helpful guidance to get you started, then genealogy.nationalarchives. ie features dedicated sections offering free access to the surviving census fragments from 1901/1911, as well as substitute sources. You can search raw census data, then view PDF copies of the original documents. Other important collections available free of charge include tithe-applotment books (1823–1837), soldiers’ wills (1914–1918), diocesan and prerogative marriage-licence bonds indexes (1623–1866), shipping agreements and crew lists (1863–1921), and various wills indexes and registers.
