Since writing this article I have found that some digitised copies of this valuable journal are available free for downloading, reading online or having bound into printed books from a site sponsored by Microsoft called the Internet Archive at which links to each volume.
The following twenty one (21) volumes are listed as being available but when I read Volume 5, it appeared to be a stray as it was titled ÔÇÿThe Journal of the Kilkenny and South East of Ireland Archaeological Society, Volume II, new series, 1858-59ÔÇÖ which was still an important rare book.

The site has the 21 volumes of the Journal, Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland arranged as digitised: Volume (no number), Volumes 29, 26, 25, 6, 30, 11, 18, 22, 9, 40, 27, 31, 24, 35, 19, 43, 28, 23,
33, and 5 (described above).

I have found more information about this Society and its journal but have resolved to leave the information above instead of just deleting the out of date information above regarding Volume 5 being a stray. It is not as the following will show.
