PARISH OF KILMOE: This parish is at the extremity of the peninsula between Dunmanus Bay and Roaring Water Bay in SW Cork. In 1821, it would have been a very remote part of Ireland. Yet, a little, 30-page, loosely-stitched tithe book/ledger has managed to survive and bears the date 1821 on its cover. This book is not to be confused with the official tithe applotment book for Kilmoe Parish which was drawn up in the year 1828, some seven years later.

This 1821 notebook's appearance is somewhat reminescent of the tenure, house and field books of Griffith's Valuation. There are a total number of 516 names, some repeats.

Unlike the Tithe Defaulters Lists which record in excess of 29,000 names, these lists do not have actual addresses. It is not clearly stated that the farmers listed for each townland actually lived in that townland. (This is not the case in the Tithe Defaulters Lists where the name of the abode is clearly stated, thus one knows where there is repetition.) However, is may be not unreasonable to assume that most or all of these farmers did live in the townlands listed; possibly you can check this information against the official tithe applotment book for Kilmoe Parish for 1828.

Per "Irish Roots," this is part of the OPMA (Official Papers Miscellaneous Assorted) files in the National Archives, Bishop Street, Dublin. (Call Number: OPMA 162/1).

In many cases the names of the townlands in 1821 have changed; more importantly, there are fewer townlands in the parish now than there were in 1821. (See below).

Surnames: Coughlan
I am trying to find some information on the parents of a Richard Coughlan. He was born about 1810 in Skull. He had at least two brothers, Timothy and Jeremiah and at least 1 sister, Margaret. Richard left for Canada in 1831 and was followed by the other three in 1833. I beleive thy were orphaned and raised by family members in the Skull area. Richard was the youngest of the three.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to find out more about Timothy Coughlan who was born in 1846-8 around this area, and left for the US in 1880. His oldest son was named Jeremiah, which makes us think that TImothy's father may have been named Jeremiah. Any information would be very appreciated.

Hello,

Are there any Scanlons in that book? David Scanlon m Mary Connely in 1830. They had three children in the parish before leaving. I have not been able to determine which townland they lived in.
