There are many wonderful Irish genealogy websites out there to use for your Irish genealogy research. I came across quite a few that were very useful, while working with a particular client whose great grandparents came from Ireland.
The website that I seemed to use the most while working on his case, was IrishGenealogy.ie. This was a fantastic website to get civil records and church records from. I was able to find many of the civil registration birth records that I needed, along with marriages and deaths.
Another fantastic site I used for the case was SWilson.info, where I was able to find registration district maps that I could use to help me look up which registration districts to search for civil records in. This site was also a fantastic tool to use in looking up Catholic and civil parishes.
Registers.nli.ie, was also a great site that I used for Catholic Parish registers.
JohnGrenham.com was very useful in looking up Roman Catholic records in the particular area that I was searching in, but they also offer a lot more to help with your research.
Another great website to use for Irish genealogy is the Irishgenealogytoolkit.com; I used this site for Irish civil registration districts, but they have a plethora of information for Irish genealogy research.
RootsIreland.ie. was also quite useful; I used this site for a list of common first name variations that you would find in records, but this site also has abundant records and research tips.
If you have any ancestors in Limerick, I came across a useful website, LimerickDiocese.org; this had the history of local churches, graveyards and more.
Family search also has an abundant list of Irish genealogy resource tools in their Wiki, and of course Family Search, Ancestry.com, MyHeritage, and the National Archives are great to use in your research.
