Townland names - several alternatives

Many people have contacted me with a Townland name which they have been unable to trace. This posting is to advise that there are "alternative" townland names for some of these areas. This derives from the "Irish" name or in some instances the "English" name allotted to that area. The book - Landscapes of South Ulster - provides the answers to many of these anomalies but sadly this book is now out of print & very costly to buy. I have a copy & will provide alternative names for those people with this difficulty.
