If you found your ancestors in the Tithe Applotments and/or Griffith’s Valuation you may also find them in some of the following documents.

The Irish Land Commission (or simply Land Commission) was created in 1881 as a rent fixing commission by the Land Law (Ireland) Act 1881, also known as the second Irish Land Act. For a century it was the body responsible for re-distributing farmland in Ireland following the end of landlordism

The Irish Land Commission

Two reports of loans made to purchase farms during the early 1900s.
1) Monthly returns of advances made under the Irish Land Act, 1903, during January to March 1912
2) Monthly returns of advances made under the Irish Land Act, 1903, during July 1915 to March 1916
They begin with the estates but further in you will find the name of the purchaser and townland – Farm Size, value, amount borrowed etc.

Another one of loans but I can’t see the images only the transcript so it’s hard work searching it, I used ‘Find on Page’ but as auto transcripts are not always correct, you have to be careful.
