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.

You can find out more about the first and second batches of records here.
