Thanks for posting the url, I had no idea there was so much of interest
written by Joyce.
And it appears all of it can be downloaded free.

Subject: FERMANAGH-GOLD Re Old forms of Townland names.
Carole, you also have stuff like P.W. Joyce's books on
Gives explanation of names;
E.G Lisnaskea in Fermanagh; the fort of the sceach or whitethorn tree. It
took its name from the celebrated Sceach-ghabhra [Skagowra], under which
Maguire used to be inaugurated. etc
Tempo in Fermanagh; shortened from the full Irish name an
t-Iompodh-deisiol [an Timpo deshill], the turning from left to right.
lompodh [impo] means
turning ; deisiol, right handed ; and the article an prefixed takes a t in
this case, which became incorporated with the word. The place received its
name. no doubt, from the ancient custom of turning sunways in worship.
has SOME of what you are looking for but I think it only
covers the south of Ireland. Takes a bit of getting used to!! Change to
English version then select county by interactive map...then select
townlands..then any scanned data for that townland!
