Knocknagalla
« on: Sunday 31 December 06 21:48 GMT (UK) »
 Anybody have any idea where Knocknagalla is/was, in Co. Offaly.      - Came across the placename, but cannot see it anywhere  on the townlands in Griffith Valuation.  Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.  Anyone help, please ?

 :-\ Thanks Lep -
       I tried replying  a few days ago (Jan 1st), but in spite of being told my message was sent, nothing has appeared on the page...and I don't know if you got the personal message I tried to send, either (same  thing - told it was "already sent") so, I'm trying again. Can you indicate some recognisable town/village, as I'm none the wiser about Knocknagalla, or Knocknagrally, if it IS the same place ?
                      Thanks again - MikeW.

 Hi MikeW.
    It Is knocknagarally but the civil parish you need is ABBEYLEIX.
       Now Queens comes under Laois Queens.
            Go to the G/valuation .
   Click on Laois Prov: Leinster  You will see ABBEYLEIX.
        That should  give you what you are looking for.
 Please let me know how you get on.
                             Lep.

I'm afraid  family history has been very much on the back-burner in recent months. I did have a bash at Laois, but no luck ....Knocknagalla will have to wait for another time.
   Thanks again.
