Question #1 was answered in an earlier thread-
Fairymount is the name of the townland- in the civil parish of Kilgefin.

On the same thread there was a link to details about Fairymount - reply #2:

I can't see a townland called Waterloo anywhere in Ireland - are you sure of the place name? See www.thecore.com/seanruad to find townlands and parishes in Ireland
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

There is a Waterloo about 6 miles north west of Cork on the N20 road, north of Blarney. It is on Google maps and you can also view the village using Street View.....

townland and parishes

Hi
Many thanks for answers for my previous thread.
I know i have asked similar questions before about townland and parishes.
I have downloaded some maps of the county of Roscommon and particular of a place called Ballagh.
The map shows the townland boundaries in the catholic parish of Ballagh but in then states their historical name given as Cloontuskert,Kilgefin, and Curraghroe. Does this mean that Ballagh in the past was called all these three names but at different times also  these places are still on maps today.
The map shows all the townland boundaries in the catholic parish of Ballagh also there there are civil parishes within the catholic parish ,Lissonuffy civil parish,Cloontuskert civil parish,Kilgefin civil parish ,Cloonfinlough civil parish and Kilbride civil parish.
