- My town land
The name of the town land in which I live is Knockroe.
It is situated about one mile from the village of Croghan.
There are six families living in it.
There are twenty-five people in this town-land.
"Horan" is the most common family name. In fact, most of the people in our town-land bear this name.
There are two thatched and four slated houses in the town-land.
There are four old people in it but they know no Irish.
The houses are not more numerous in the town-land than they were in former times.
Three people from my town-land emigrated to America three years ago. There is a song about the town-land of Knockroe but I do not know it.
The land is good around the district.
There is a wood near our farm and there is also an ancient graveyard.
There are rivers, a lake and streams in our town-land.(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
