I have noticed some of my Gallagher ancestors are identified in the Kilmacteige Parish - RC Records as being baptised in the Townland of 'Clurhy'. I have been unable to find any other reference to Cluhry as being a townland. 

Can anyone shed a light on the Clurhy name?

  • Hi Mark,

    You should contact Sligo County Library at to see if there is any reference in the Archives to this location.

    During Griffith's Land Valuation - 1840's/50's -  many areas which had local names were absorbed into a more identifiable townland.

    There is a similar query to yours by a Janet Walsh Coy in 2016 on Ireland Reaching Out.,

  • Hi McCoy,

    Thanks for the reply - I checked out the site you suggested and got a fast response from the librarian and a list of some good web sites as well. This didn't solve the mystery but it has pointed me in another direction which may eventually prove positive.
