Dromore townland in Clare
« on: Saturday 02 June 18 06:24 BST (UK) »
Back again searching some more on location of Dromore. When I searched for Dromore townland that is fine and I get area  etc and also BORDERS which showed me AUGHRIM (Toohy) as one of the borders, can anyone explain that for me please as that is the name I have been researching. I've just about isolated the Tuohy name to Feakle parish but interested in this border bit.

Think it's the other Dromore, just to the north of Dromore Lough with Aughrim (Ross) and Aughrim (Toohy) to the south.

No place called Borders there either.

What does it mean with the (Toohy) in brackets?????? As I said Toohey (& variations) is the name I am researching and  'borders' was the heading showing the borders around Dromore.

Feakle was mentioned so I posted the Feakle one.

Are you talking about agnomens on Griffiths???


You'll notice also that among the lessees of Plot 2 are two men called Patrick Regan. The townland name of Colla has been typed in parenthesis after the first Patrick (Patk) Regan. The townland name of Skull is recorded after the second Patrick Regan.

Richard Griffith expected his Valuators to provide additional information (agnomen) where two or more individuals in a townland shared the same name. This, as anyone studying Irish genealogy soon discovers, is a regular occurrence in some areas. While sometimes the agnomen merely helps to identify two different people, it sometimes provides direct genealogical information.

In this example for Colla, the agnomen identify the townlands where the two men live. So while one Patrick Regan lives in Colla, on the land he rents, the other lives in Skull.
