The Irish Manuscripts Commission has a lot of old Irish books online and free. These include the Calendar of Ormond Deeds, The Book of Survey & Distribution and The Civil Survey and many other interesting books that could be useful for genealogy in early periods. They plan to add more titles.
There are nearly 350 eBooks listed at this site with links. Most are 19th century with some from the previous century.
On this site the eBooks are grouped under the following headings:
* History of Ireland* Local History* Guidebooks* Irish Diaspora – General* Irish Diaspora- North America* Family Histories* Disputed Inheritance Cases* Irish-American Family Histories* Irish-Canadian Family Histories* Irish Genealogy Sources
UKIsearch.com is a good site for Co Tipperary ancestry research. It has many links to databases and records and they are all on this one site. The site covers Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Britain. It also has an International section.

I have found some Dublin City records for related Fannings. However a lot of the Christian names are written in Latin and this can be misleading. I have also searched and found a record and not been able to find it again. Not sure why this happened. Play around with different search terms.
Tipperary Source Lists on the Rootireland web site has links to information on Co.Tipperary Ireland that will be helpful in tracing your Irish ancestors. Includes Parish and Record dates; what records are available for baptisms and marriages; descriptions of towns in Tipperary; listings of churches in Co Tipperary and any associated graveyards and more.
Interment.net lists records for cemeteries worldwide including Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States. All the Australian cemeteries listed can be surname searched using the site search engine on the Australian listing.
The Irish Times Ancestry section. This includes an online version of material in found in John Grenham’s Tracing Your Irish Ancestors, Third Edition. You can get this book through Amazon. I recommend Amazon as I have found they are so much cheaper than specialist genealogy bookstores and it is often possible to get a second hand copy. I have never had any problems with Amazon.com either.
Jane Lyons has a comprehensive site called From Ireland.
