The record returned by FindMyPast under this collection is a transcript only - there are no images. The record is endorsed/marked "Index _ IRI. Used by permission of Familysearch Intl."
Heywood's link refers to an "Index".

Could Kingsland relate to Barnewall, Viscount Kingsland?.
Have seen mention of Kingsland of Donabate, Co. Dublin. Not Co. Meath but in that general area.

I read a lot yesterday about the building of Llyn Brianne which included looking at old photos of the area, Fannog farmhouse re-appearing when the level sinks because of drought.
I'm a beneficiary of the development drinking Llyn Brianne water daily!

Thanks for the post.

I'm with the enumerators and the job they did with so much against them, particularly the '41 Census. 
They were unlikely to get rich -
"The persons employed in taking the new census are to e paid in proportion to the number of houses or persons in the districts assigned to them; from 10s for every district containing less than 50 inhabited houses or 30 persons, up to 1 1s for every district containing from 150 to 160 inhabited houses or 900 to 960 persons enumerated, with an increasing rate of 1s for every 10 additional houses or 60 additional persons."

"THE CENSUS - a bill to provide for the better remuneration of the enumerators, to lessen their work, and to alter the day of taking to the 7th of June, was introduced into the House of Commons and read a first time on Friday, and a second reading ordered for Monday".
I think (1) an additional payment of 5s and (2) other than the enumerator could deliver the forms pre Census was proposed.

This shows the modern map and Llyn Brianne. Cribin is now markerd 1 and 2. No 1 is certainly under Llyn Brianne. Click on Tithe map overlay to confirm location.
2. Untick Tithe map overlay and click on 1888 map. You already have this. The buildings have disappeared and just noticed a "Ford" (Rhyd in Welsh) marked near Clyn-glas.
