(Maps/Breakdown of Townlands in a Parish, as listed by County)

<Introductory Page>

Townland Maps

The townland is the smallest and most ancient of Irish land divisions, and is the goal of all family researchers in identifying the origin of their ancestors. The townland was names at an early period and they usually referred to a very identifiable landmark in the local area such as a mountan, a bog, an oak forest, a village, a fort or a church. The townland became standardized as a basic division in the 17th century surveys by people with little knowledge of the Irish language. As a consequence many place anmes were either lost or had their meaning or construction altered.

A record of townland names, shapes and sizes for all Ireland exist in the maps of the Ordnance Survey completed in 1846 at the scale of 6 inches to 1 mile. The complete set of maps can be consulted in the National Library, Dublin. On these maps are now record the standardized spellings of Ireland’s 60, 462 townlands.

On a county basis, however, it is not practical to consult the 6” Ordnance Survey maps and, because of their large scale, they can not show, at a glance, parish boundaries. For example it takes 110 maps to cover County Donegal at a scale of 6inches to 1 mile.

It is the intention of this eries of maps to show, on a county basis, all townlands within their respective civil parishes. To 1898 the civil parish was the major administrative division. The two great surveys of the 19th century 0 the tithe assessment and the Griffith’s valuation – were compiled on a civil parish basis with householders listed against their appropriate townland address.
The purpose of the maps reproduced here is two fold:

  1. to provide the means to locate an ancestral home, to show all townlands and their relationship to one another.
  2. to act as a reference tool to those researching Irish record sources, in particular, tithe records, the Griffiths valuation and 19th century census returns.

The General Alphabetical Index to the Townlands of Ireland, based on the 1851 census, was used to compile the parish boundaries.

How to use these maps

Use the index t the beginning of each county to identify the parish you require. In addition to the depiction of each civil parish’s townlands there is, alongside each map, an alphabetical list of each parish’s constituent townlands.

The townland spellings on our maps are those recognized by the Ordnance Survey from the 1830’s onwards. This means townland spellings in records collected before this time, such as the tithe books, are very varied. For example in Glendermot Parish, County Londonderry the same townland appears as Coolkeerragh in the Griffiths valuation, as Killkeraugh in the 1831 census and as Culkeeragh in the tithe book. The maps and accompanying lists will help in deciphering early spellings of townland names.

These maps were compiled by the trainees of Derry Youth and community Workshop and by the employees of the Inner City trust. Both organizations are funed by the Department of Economic Development.
