Information about Ireland
Information about Ireland isn't hard to find. There's loads of it on the Net. But much of it isn't particularly useful, entertaining or even up-to-date.
This area of Irish Genealogy Toolkit aims to provide current information about Ireland in a series of articles, factsheets and features that are geared as much to residents of the island as to those who are planning a visit (whether for genealogy research or pure tourism).
You'll find first-hand experience and quality research bringing you essential advice for visitors, snippets of history, ideas for things to do in Ireland, and well-written features (some of which have previously appeared in print publications) to extend your knowledge about this beautiful Ireland.
In short, these pages make up a miscellany of useful, quirky, nostalgic and 'interesting to know' information about Ireland, past and present.
