Irish Research

 A good place to start researching the Irish who came to Canada, is the Library and Archives Canada site at 
They say that ‘Canada's most recent census returns list the Irish as the fourth largest ethnic group in Canada with almost four and a half million Canadians claiming either some or full Irish lineage. Indeed, this bond between Canada and Ireland has been in existence for centuries’.

At this site, they have the Genealogy and Family History section, where they list under the headings of Research at Library and Archives Canada, Research in Published Sources, and Research at Other Insitutions and Online sources that may hold answer to your Irish research. 

So if you have Irish anscestors, this may be a good place to start your Irish research.
