 Counties of Ireland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The counties of Northern Ireland are no longer used for local government, and two former counties in the Republic have been subdivided, giving a modern total of 29 counties for administrative purposes rather than 26.
The counties are subdivisions of the ancient Provinces of Ireland
The "traditional" 26 counties are no longer the main basis for local government, planning and community development purposes, although unlike the counties in Great Britain, the Republic's traditional county boundaries are still generally respected for other purposes (counties on occasion being sub-divided).

 COUNTIES OF ENGLAND, WALES, AND SCOTLAND
County names no longer need be used in English addresses, so this table is mainly of historical interest, but might also be useful in decoding old-style addresses, which, although "deprecated", are still widely used.
In England, county names are not prefixed by the word "county" (as they are in Ireland), with one exception: County Durham, to distinguish the county from the city of the same name.
Like the counties of England and Wales, Scottish counties have been redrawn, renamed, converted to regions and back to counties, and so forth; thus this list is more a curiosity than of any particular use in postal addressing, other than historical.

Determining your Irish ancestor's place of origin in Ireland is a critical step in family history research if you hope to "find" him or her in Irish records and fill out the branches on your family tree.
Surveys that locate geographic concentrations of surnames and maps that locate their historical origins can help but in the end you will have to find out where your specific ancestor originated if you hope to proceed with accurate genealogical research.
In some cases there will be very specific information about the county or town of origin, specific birth dates and immigration dates.

 Guide to Irish Law by Dr Darius Whelan
A new Constitution in 1922 meant that twenty six counties became the independent ‘Irish Free State.’ Six other counties in Northern Ireland remained part of the United Kingdom, and this has, of course, been the subject of great controversy since then.
Article 73 of the 1922 Constitution carried all previous UK law forward into Irish law, which explains why some pre-1922 UK statutes are still in force in Ireland.
Titles of Irish unreported judgments from 1993 to date are available on-line from UCC Library at http://booleweb.ucc.ie/search/subject/law/lawcol.htm.

What I learned was that because Ireland has been inundated with inquiries from people of Irish descent about their ancestors, the Irish Family History Foundation has coordinated a network of government-approved genealogical research centers in both the Republic of Ireland and the North of Ireland.

Once you have his or her name, I strongly recommend that you begin with the Irish Family History Foundation.
