Thank you Dickon, I am very much obliged. Also to others who assure me 
that the records are not lost. I cannot trace the email (possibly on an 
old computer somewhere) but my memory is that Chris Ridley, who was 
librarian at the time, sent me a scan of the entry for an 1887 peal but 
said that some of the earlier records were lost in the war. IIRC the 
inference was that particular entries had become illegible due to damage 
rather than that the actual books themselves were totally lost.

I shall be most grateful for anything that is available.

I did come across the Waterford peal during my searches of the 
newspapers; it took my eye especially since my maternal ancestors came 
from there.
