For less common names, buy the CD with Griffiths Index and look it up yerself. This is very easy. You can also other all Irish CDs, for those who object to going to a library. Often the experts who write these books used indexes like Griffiths in composing their books. These resources are now available to us. IGI can be a bit misleading for surnames in Ireland because it doesn't have enough Irish sources to provide an objective look. Griffiths and the Tithe Applotment indexes are generally used.

Some of his surname histories are quite confusing. He mentions the use of the surname Scott as a personal name in England, which has nothing to do with the surname Scott in Ireland. He gives histories of many names, but does not directly say how or if these histories apply these surnames as they appear in Ireland. He may mention the appearance of surnames in other countries, but doesn't say the surname in question came from that country.
It's a fair book, it may or may not help you out.
