The Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898

As a result of the Local Government (Ireland) Act of 1898, several townlands were transferred from the counties of Mayo and Galway, to the county of Roscommon. These transfers have resulted in a perplexing issue for many researchers as the family "stories", and many times the actual Irish records, will produce seemingly conflicting accounts of just where our ancestors originated. The following list can help to clear up those issues that are associated with the changing boundaries that occurred as a result of the above Act.
