Street Directories

Street directories can be useful in genealogical research for tracing family lines and addresses and even trying to guess when a family member died (by absence). Here are some links which refer to Cork City:
Business in St. Patrick’s St the main street in Cork City

Cork 1787 Directory

Holden’s Triennial 1809 Directory

1824 Cork City Trade Directory

Aldwell’s 1845 Cork Street Directory
Here is a list I find useful to refer to but I have not seen them all:
