There is a book "A New Genealogical Atlas of Ireland" which I find really useful for sorting out all those things. It doesn't include townlands (not townships, by the way ;) ) and is diagrammatic so you don't see the towns and villages, but everything else is in there. In particular, you can see how the baronies normally follow parish boundaries but every so often, they go off piste and slice a parish in half, with the result that you might think Co. Tipperary has two parishes called Nenagh (say) - one in Upper Ormond barony, another in Lower Ormond. However, the map shows clearly that it's one parish and the boundary between the two baronies cuts through Nenagh parish.

Maps of townlands are a/v online - I usually end up with the large scale OS maps but I'm not sure which site I use - a different one each time, I think!

Looks like another book to add to the vast library then Adrian.. :lol:

But.. onwards and upwards.. my foray into Wales only lasted 3 generations then back to Shropshire. I'm looking forward to the challenge, s'pose I'd better brush up on my Latin and learn Gaelic..

EDIT: Got a new copy coming 12 quid.

BTW, the first James Denham, who married Mary Kirkpatrick (sic), is listed as the father of Thomas baptised in 1835 in Ballyroney. Don't know if this map might help?

It's getting more confusing now Mayham..

Ballyroney village isn't in Ballyroney townland now.. looks like the village centre has moved to the crossroads..
Is Drumballyroney parish all of those townlands then?

I believe so. Ballymoney parish is in the upper right hand corner of Ros' hand drawn map. At the top of the page is a link to email her.

Thank you Mayham.. I'll see if I can get it.

I believe I've found Thomas' brother Josephs marriage, it's at or he lives at Banbridge, just up the road from Ballyroney.

BTW, the information about Ellen Duffy, d/o Hugh, appears to have been gleaned from RootsIreland. She is the only one listed in that age range.
