A couple of pay-as-you-go sites would be:
www.irish-world.com and www.ireland.com/ancestor/
Two good free sites that I've used are:
www.ulsterancestry.com and www.fermanagh.org.uk
I've entered the following posting in the latter website:

Patrick (or perhaps Wm. Patrick) McCort b. May 1764?, his wife Susan(na) Lockhart b. 1784? with their 10 children emigrated to Canada in the mid-1830s from Co. Fermanagh. They may have lived in Enniskillen or nearby. Children's names: John b.1802, James b.1809, Andrew b.bef. 1816, Hugh b.1816, Barbara b.bef. 1821, Jane b.bef. 1821, Mary b.1821, Margaret b.Mar. 1, 1822, Martha b.1823 and Susan b.1832. The family farmed in Albion Twp. of Cardwell in the Province of Upper Canada. Son John appears to have returned to Ireland prior to his death in 1845. His family appears to have been involved in the petroleum industry in PA, USA and in Petrolia, Ontario. Any information about Patrick or Susan's siblings who may have remained in Ireland would be greatly appreciated

Hugh McCort and my GGgrandfather, Patrick are close enough in age to be brothers.
