Ancestry adds Irish Marriages in Walker's Hibernian Magazine

Ancestry has a new Irish collection: Ireland, Marriages in Walker's Hibernian Magazine, 1771-1812, located at http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9141. The following is a description of the dataset:

This database is an index to Irish marriages from the years 1771 to 1812 as found in Walker's Hibernian Magazine (first issued in 1771 and discontinued in 1812). It also includes as an appendix a list of births, marriages, and deaths for the years 1793 and 1794 from the Anthologia Hibernica.

Marriages are listed under both the husband's and the wife's surnames. This double listing optimizes your search capabilities because if you do not know one name, you can search under the other and find out what the spouse's name is.
