Manorhamilton, Leitrim, Ireland

I am looking for information on the Williamson family who came to the US from Manorhamilton, Leitrim, Ireland in the 1820s. Names include John Williamson b.abt. 1788, William Williamson b. 1812, Rebecca Williamson b. 1816, John's wife Ann McClure, John's parents: John and Jane (Cullen) Williamson, John's brother William b. abt. 1785. Jane Cullen's mother may have been Mary Highland. John (1788) and William (1785) were shoemakers. John was a loyal adherent to the Church of England.

Researching Ireland

I have some Irish ancestors who came to the United States sometime in the 1820s. I haven't found any good way of researching them online. I know the town they came lived in and have found information on the town and now I'm looking for places to find records of their time in Ireland. I would love to hear from anyone who has had success researching Irish roots online. My ancestors were Protestant which seems to be an additional challenge.
