On 13 April, 1922, there was a fire in Dublin and many of Ireland's records were destroyed. The Four Courts was a repository of Irish public records, state, domestic, manorial records, wills, and ecclesiastical records. This has made research in Ireland more difficult. The good news is some were saved and some records can also be found at the local levels.
