If you decide to go late-period, consider:
Reconstructing History's articles on late-period Irish dress
clothing from "ancient times to 1600"
and the arisaid
Medieval Scotland's clothing resources
the Reviewed Index of Scottish Clothing Links
There are two good printed references on the history of Irish clothing,
one of which is also among the premier resources on Scottish clothing
_Dress in Ireland: A History_, by Mairead Dunlevy is widely available.
You should be able to find it through Inter-Library Loan (in the
States, at least) as well as through any number of on- and off-line
vendors. The author has webbed a brief article on the history of
clothing in county Clare
<http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/history/costume.htm> that you
might find somewhat useful.
_Old Irish and Highland Dress, with Notes on That of the Isle of Man_,
by H.F. McClintock is an older book, long out of print, which is
difficult to find in hard copy anywhere. It is available in a PDF
facsimile edition from Unicorn Limited
Barony of Bryn Gwlad
Kingdom of Ansteorra
