Castleplunket  County Roscommon


In 1837, Samuel Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland described Castleplunket like this:

CASTLE-PLUNKETT, a village, in the parish of BASLICK, barony of BALLINTOBBER, county of ROSCOMMON, and province of CONNAUGHT, 5 ½ miles (E. by S.) from Castlerea: the population is returned with the parish. It is situated on the road from Strokestown to Castlerea, and comprises about 40 cabins. ...

The vicinity is bare of trees, with the exception of Millton, the seat of Roderic O'Connor, Esq., where the woods extend down a gentle slope to a turlough of near 200 acres, and have a rich appearance. Fairs are held here on the 1st Thursday (O. S.) in May, Aug. 13th, and Oct 11th.—See BASLICK.
