I am not an expert or professional in Irish immigration affairs but perhaps I can offer some help. I am Irish and my wife is pinay. Ireland is not an easy country to gain entry to nowadays due to the system having tightened up over the last few years.
You met via the internet and married. The amount of time you have spent together is also important, Has your husband been to visit you since your marriage, visits will go towards proof, have you made attempts to obtain a Visitor visa to visit him. Even if they refused a visitor visa application it shows that you tried and your husband tried to get you over here to Ireland also.
In Ireland marriage soon after an internet meeting would be viewed with a degree of suspicion. I would suspect that this may be the main source of your problem. While in the short term that is a big problem, in the long term it will be a small problem. Your appeal was refused, that is an appeal on your first application, on the same application and evidence, do not be disheartened by it.
Dont lose heart, keep working at it.

My wife and I had the exact same situation untill last week. (I'm Irish, she's a Filipina) On appeal we submitted absolutely every piece of correspondence we had from each other, letters from parents & friends endorsing our relationship, photos from each time I was in the Philippines etc...ALSO and most importantly we think, is that we contacted our local government representative (tell your husband his local TD) who also appealed on our behalf. Four days after we lodged the appeal my wifes visa was approved. Hope this helps and best of luck
