Land Records & Maps
Townlands, Parishes, etc.
Counties are made up of parishes and parishes are made up of a group of townlands. If you are doing any research in Ireland these divisions become extremely important.
For further information:

http://www.ancestryireland.com/database.php?filename=townlands

To find townlands, parishes, etc. in Ireland- (change default setting from exact match to find part of a word)
