Thanks to ptraynor in Gold Rush Country for the above information.

These resources are available in Ireland, and major libraries around the world on microfiche / film. There is an index, and county volumes are available. The Family History Centers , of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have copies of almost all genealogical resources from around the world. See link in the list above for Irish searching there.

For those interested in Ulster History check out: PRONI, Public Record Office of No. Ireland in Belfast. Great historical information and resources.
Brownlow, Dawson, Leslie, Rossmore, and McGeough-Bond records there contain information on holdings in Monaghan, Tyrone, Armagh, and elsewhere. Look under collections. The Annesley Books of Survey and Distribution sound interesting.
