Does anybody know anything about Greengardens, Rathcline? It has come up in records and is apparently in Longford. We were wondering if it were an estate of some kind? Or a small section of the town? Any info would be apprecited!

    I did not locate Greengardens. There is a townland in Cashel parish Co. Longford called Greenhall Lower and also Greenhall Upper.  Cashel civil parish borders Rathcline civil parish to the southeast.

    Can you share the records where Greengardens is shown?

  • Thanks, TGF.  If the townland is Barnacor, then what exactly is/was Greengardens?  We cannot find any reference to it when we google it.

    The records that we found that have "Greengardens" are 1)  On a ship passenger list for an Irishman emigrated to the U.S.  he put his last residence as "Greengardens."   2) On a 1914 civil marriage records, the bride put her residence as "Greengardens."  I understand Greengardens is probably not an official place, I'm just trying to get an idea of exactly what it was.

    Also.....In that same area (Lanesborough) is a townland called "Gurteengar."  Could this this be another name for Greengardens?  (Maybe an Irish form?) 

    Thanks!

  • Greengardens is the eastern part of Barnacor townsland., Gurteengar is a nearby but different townsland.
