Emlimoran, sometimes said and written Emblymoran, is a townland in County Sligo. In the 1901 and 1911 census, there were nineteen houses there.

There are a couple of compositions written by school children in the 1930's describing their townlands in Ireland.

In May, 1938, Margaurite Barrins wrote that there were about twenty houses and they are all made of slate. There are about 100 people in the 20 houses. All of the residents are farmers and each farm has about twenty acres. All of the residents are Catholic and there is one shop in Emlimoran. She talked to Mr. John Jordan. Emlimoran is six miles from Ballina and a mile from the church. My Townland

In Dec, 1938, Michael Foody wrote that there were sixteen houses and seventy residents. Each farm is 35 to 40 acres and has some bog attached to it. He also writes that there is no shop and that 2/3 of the houses are slated and the rest thatched. Emlimoran is about a mile and a half away from the national school. The most common names are Foody, Barrins and Jordan. Michael got his information from Mr. John Foody who lived in Knockbrack. My Townland

I think I have added all of the people on the 1901 and 1911 censuses. In 1911, there were 19 occupied homes. In 1901, that was the same.

In Griffith's Valuation, there were 24 Occupiers, including Gore and Knox, the landlords. On the Valuation, there is a Catherine Foody. She is probably a widow or she would still be in her father's household. She is renting a house land and offices.I do not have enough to add a profile for her. There is also a Catherine Howe renting a house and land.
