Donegal Townlands


The official list of Townlands contains approximately 2,836 Townland names, and these were used as a basis for the 1857 Griffith's Valuation and the Census.

However, in old church records, letters and on maps compiled by the Ordnance Survey Office in the 1830s, there are at least another 1,500 placenames or 'unofficial townlands.'


So far I have compiled a list of 4,500 townlands/placenames and there are more which I will add, when time allows for pouring over the old maps.


The sources I have used are the Ordnance Survey Maps 1835, Placenames Database of Ireland, and local knowledge.


All three sources need to be checked as to date, there is no one place to find ALL the Donegal Placenames
