<< can someone help me locate:
Cleghill Parish, Clonbroney, Co. Longford
Clongish Parish Churchyard
Old Temple Buring Grounds, Longford
A town called Leam where some family sailed from in Sept 1765.
I may be able to help a bit. Cleghill is probably Cleggill, and is
Clongesh civil parish (but perhaps in Clonbroney RC Parish? Dunno.)
Discovery Map #40, it's located at 107 772, 2 miles south of Newtown
and about 3 mile NW of Longford town.
Clongesh is a civil parish, but there is no townland named Clongesh, so I
don't know where the churchyard would be. Again, you need
church information - I have only the map and civil parish info.
Nothing on "Old Temple Burying Grounds", by that name.
Leam. The only Leam I can find, which has easy access to a harbor is in
Mayo, way out on the Mullet. On Discovery map 22, it's located at 637
about 6 miles N of Blacksod Point, on Elly Harbour. Keep in mind
is an Aghleam, a few miles down the road closer to Blacksod Point. I
seen quite a few postings about this place on the Mayo list recently,
spelling was a bit different (perhaps starting with an
"E"?). The person
commenting on some sort of a resource or heritage center there that
visited, and recommended it. The "leam" in the name, also
being an area
a long maritime tradition .........I would ask on the Mayo list for
information. I drove around the Mullet last Fall, and it's a
place. You might want to "buzz over" from Longford, and check it out.
