The Townlands of Gortroe Civil Parish

The townlands in Gortroe Parish (An Gort Rua) are those taken from Gortroe Parish on Logainm.ie and validated against townlands on Townlands.ie, PlacenamesNI.org where appropriate, Griffiths valuations data and the 1901 and 1911 censuses. A link is provided in the notes for the 1901 and 1911 census. Please note that these may not always work if the townland was not available on the census in question. The census site may also substitute a similar name so be prepared for unexpected results!
If the townland has a category it will be linked in the table below. If there is no link and you need the category please (preferrably for Irish categories) contact David to get the category created or put in a request for the category to be created. Alternatively see Townland Category Information Boxes below for how to create them yourself.
