Findmypast.ie has released online the third batch of records from the Petty Sessions order books (1850-1910).

This set of entries contains information on more than 2 million cases with most records giving comprehensive details of the case including: name of complainant, name of defendant, names of witnesses, cause of complaint, details of the judgement, details of a fine if any, and details of a sentence passed down if any. Another 8 million cases are to follow throughout 2012.

If you have roots stretching back to counties Limerick, Louth, Mayo, Monaghan, Tipperary, or Wexford you'll find this group of records particularly useful.
