My District.
Aughersakilla is my district. It has 22 families living in it and 92 people. The land in it is fairly wet. There is a lot of bog in it also. There is an old man living in it. His name is Tommy Jones. He is 97 years of age. This is how Aughersakilla got its name. It was a great place for cockfights and it is named Aga coileach meaning the land of the cocks.
