Thoms Directory 1852 - with 1852 pages plus 23 pages of ads is available on "full view" on www.books.google.com. Just search for Thoms directory Ireland. In fact, there is a massive collection of old Irish texts there. My favourites are the various Irish histories dated in the 1770s by John Huddlestone Wynne which are also there and written in olde english. Just search for the name.
