[4qd-bannvalley] Where is Killygullib?

Thanks for the info, Billy.  Perhaps you can explain why Killygullib, by the
sounds of it, a substantial townland, is not marked on the modern Discoverer
OS map.

Oddly enough, the other townland which Alison metioned, Lislea, is where all
my mother's folk, the Gordons hail from, and is a large well populated
townland.  My grandfather's farm, pronounced The Maine, but spelled, The
Meen, is actually marked on the map.
