So, I'm working on indexing the articles in Béaloideas, making it easier to find articles collected on certain dates, or by certain people or from certain places. I'm currently almost done with the 3rd book of Volume 1. I've been working on getting places, titles, collector/teller and dates mostly. I just wanted to validate some of them (and maybe get English translations of a few).

But, the main one that caused me to post this: 'Tuar an Fhearathainn, Ceapach Chuinn'. The only thing on Logainm was in Waterford...Is this the correct place? It seemed out of place to me, given that the first volume is dominated by Corca Dhuibhne, so I wanted to double check. Also, if anyone wants the file as I've got it so far, or wants to help, please let me know! I would love to include a topic DB eventually, but right now I'm much more interested in date and location (primarily the latter, as a lot of the older stuff is fairly unedited, meaning good access to Native Irish).

Tuar : well drained land that is free from water pools, trees , very green in appearance
Fearann : ploughland
Tuar An Fhearainn : the good land that was ploughed/is ploughed.

I was aware of the meaning, but I'm trying to find where the place is. I'm still leaning towards it being in Waterford, though the schools' collection from the area only had English, so I'm not sure...

One good place to search for townlands and parishes is https://www.townlands.ie

It also has links to logainm.ie and other sources.
