The Four Courts were the main repository for Irish records. In 1922 it was shelled during the civil war by the Free State troops to end the occupation by the anti-treaty forces. The fire caused by the fighting meant a lot of records were lost forever. But there is also plenty that survived, now kept in a multitude of offices in Dublin. And more and more is available online.
