Hi KG,

Thanks for your reply, that's one interesting website. I've tried to find Rathmacan before on google maps and could only find 3 or 4 houses there. My question is though what is a townland exactly?

Many thanks and best wishes, John.

A far less detailed explanation but which also explains other land divisions you may encounter.

You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.
