It is the property of Charles Kirwan, Esq., Dalgan. Park. Agent, Charles Crombie, of Annefield. It is let to occupying tenants at will, in farms of from 1 to 4 acres, at a yearly rent of 30s. per acre. The tenants are all Roman Catholics. There are 2 ancient forts in this td., one of which is in the east side and the other, in the south-west side.

When searching for a placename type some or all of the word and click search. If you are unsure of the spelling try a part of the word . For example the placename Mocharra sounds like Moharra so if you search for arra you should find it. For example a placename record ( eg Rostaff ) gives the townland ( eg Moyne ) and the civil parish ( eg Shrule ) .
