KILLALOE at the Eastern extremity of this County, is an old Village and a Bishop’s See, it’s a Market Town well inhabited; this place was formerly noted for great Encampments, and famous for it’s Vicinity with CEANNCORA. (1)

From KILLALOE to MOUNT SHANNON DALY (a Connaught Boundary) is a Hilly Country with some fertile Vallies, the Shannon in some Parts there, is immensely broad, the Lands from thence (including SLIEVE EIGHTY, bordering on the County of Galway) to Burren, is rather poor and Mountainous than otherwise.
