Shrule Town

B.S.S.M. : 27
See parish name.

  • Shrule : J. 0’D,
  • Shroule : Down Survey Maps

Situated in the South of the parish.
It is bounded on the N. by Ramolin td.; W. by Cloonbanaun td.; S. by the parish of Donaghpatrick in County Galway; and E. by Dalgan Demesne.

The village contains 86 houses; .many of which are neatly built, and
the salubrity of the climate is such as to render it a desirable residence
for invalids.To the rear of Riverview is a hamlet called Gurtloygraph in
which are manyinstances of longevity. An extensive brewery is carried on,
and there are large corn-mills, the property of R. Golden, Esq. A market
for corn is held here every Thursday, which is abundantly supplied and there
are fairs on Easter-Monday, July 26th, and Nov 11th. A constabulary police
force is stationed in the village and petty sessions are held on alternate

There are in the village 9 public houses and a police station, together with a police station and a brewery.
The latter has been built, and is occupied, by Wm. Golden, Esq., who holds it under a lease of 999 years at a rent of £30 per annum.

The antiquities here are an old castle, an old fort, an old church, and the site of an old abbey.
Near the N.E. corner of the latter is a large stone called Cruckvahina, or the Blessed Stone. (Clock Bheannuighthe, the blessed stone).

The placename database covers the Poor Law Unions of Ballinrobe and Tuam roughly a 15 kilometer radius centered on Shrule , the townland database covers most of Connaught in lesser detail .

Find ::

When searching for a placename type some or all of the word and click search. If you are unsure of the spelling try a part of the word . For example the placename Mocharra sounds like Moharra so if you search for arra you should find it. For example a placename record ( eg Rostaff ) gives the townland ( eg Moyne ) and the civil parish ( eg Shrule ) .
