D’Loughtane

D’Loughtane (and various other designations)

We recently came across the following Waterford maps courtesy of Twitter friends @TimeFinding – one from 1685 by William Petty and the other from 1746.

What caught our eye initially were the various townland designations show on both maps for the parish of Clashmore & Kinsalebeg (some of which are quite cryptic!), but the one that stands out has to be the different names given for the contemporary townland of D’Loughtane.
