Irish place names with Geraldene O'Reilly

The majority of Irish genealogy records are arranged by locality and most people within them are identified by the place name where they lived. The townland is the most fundamental land division in Ireland, the basic address for a rural family. 

Listen to Geraldene O'Reilly's talk to help you investigate Irish townlands and other place names.

We hope that this gives you the motivation to start your Irish family history research!

Happy hunting
