Irish Landed Estates site expands

NUI Galway's Irish Landed Estates website at www.landedestates.ie has been significantly expanded beyond the province of Connacht to now include the province of Munster, meaning it now covers half of Ireland. The site is of more use to those in the property owning classes than the labouring classes, but nevertheless this is still a significant resource from a social history point of view. Time to see if I can find more of my wife's lot from Kilkenny and Tipperary!

There is more in depth coverage at the Irish Genealogy News blog http://irish-genealogy-news.blogspot.com/2011/05/landed-estates-resource-extended-to.html
