Tales from the Townlands – Heritage week 2024

March 14 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Join Dr Frances Kane and Professor Keith Lilley from Queen’s University Belfast as they explore how the townlands were surveyed and mapped, how their names were gathered and recorded by Ireland’s Ordnance Survey. Drawing on exciting new research at Queen’s University Belfast, these ‘tales’ from the townlands tell us about those places in the distant past, as well as about ‘life in the field’ for those involved in mapping out Ireland’s 60,000+ townlands.
