I live in Lackandarra which is a large townland to the south of Glantane village in the parish of Kilshannig, Barony of Duhallow Co. Cork. It is divided into two parts - Upper and Lower Lackandarra.
The word Lackandarra means the hill-side of the oak. The townland is on high ground sloping towards the south and south-west where is it bounded by a stream called the Dubh Glasha a small tributary of the Blackwater. Though it is easy to see how the townland got the first part of the name, no traces of an oak wood can be seen. Except as a shelter round each house the townland is without trees of any kind.
The land is fertile but is not naturally rich. It is well cultivated and produces good crops especially of potatoes and oats and there is scarcely any waste land. There are eighteen families in the townland of whom six are Connells four are Callaghans and three are Ryans.
