It is let to tenants at will, in farms of from 5 to 12 acres, at the yearly rent of from 18s. to 20s. per Irish acre. There is a great deal of rocky and boggy land, for which the tenants also pay.

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 ) .
