Leitrim Placenames

Many Leitrim placenames are now available on www.logainm.ie, the site of An Coimisiúin Logainmneacha. However, the Irish versions of many townlands are not yet available on this site.

As an interim measure Leitrim Co Library has updated the versions of the names produced by John O’Donovan during the Ordnance Survey in the 1830s. These names, townlands mainly, have been listed here under civil parish. The meaning of the placename in English is also given.

Generally speaking, the name as interpreted by O’Donovan has been left as it was. An Coimisiúin Logainmneacha will, in time, come up with the definitive version but, in the meantime, this listing will give versions which can be used and will, in most cases, be correct.

To find a townland

In the original O’Donovan’s Name Books the placenames were listed under Civil Parishes. There were 17 Civil Parishes as opposed to 24 Church parishes. People are more familiar with Church Parishes and the church parishes are listed below, referring you to the relevant Civil Parish
