Another 2m Irish Petty Sessions records on

Another big tranche of records from the Irish Petty Sessions Court order books has been uploaded to FindMyPast Ireland.

More than two million new records have been added to the online collection, which already stood at about 8million, and this upload sees 25 courts – from counties Cavan, Clare, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kilkenny, Louth, Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary and Waterford – making an appearance for the first time.

In addition, updates have been made to more than 50 of the courts who already featured in the collection, and many now include cases dating up to 1912.
