The Irish Times digital archive could be useful for genealogy. I haven’t tried it yet but here is the link: Irish Times Archive
Another useful source for genealogy is the digitized books on Google. You can search for items of interest and see what comes up. Some of these books are available in their entirety in pdf format while others are only available in snippets. I have downloaded the two volumes of Charles Gibson’s History of the City and County Cork as well as other books of interest.
