http://maps.openstreetmap.ie/

allows one to plot Townlands, Parishes and Counties and see how they all interact, I've found it useful for the area South West of Lurgan as only have to move a Townland to be across into another Parish or from Armagh to Down.
Unfortunately the Poor Law Union tick box is only for Dublin as that would be useful too as the few mile move also took them from Lurgan to Banbridge GRO area.
Its the map that the Townlands site aghadowey posted shows, but the Openstreetmap links at the bottom of that page lead to normal road maps rather than the above.
