[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
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.
