Ordnance Survey Letters by John O'Donovan and Eugene Curry, 1839

Parish of Kilcorney (b)

In the Valley of Glensleade in this Parish was situated a Castle of the same name, which is now levelled to the ground. It is mentioned in the College list of O’Loughlin Burren’s Castles, often referred to. I shall here transcribe the list of the Parishes and castles of Burren, as they stand in the original, with the modern names placed opposite them.

The Barony of Gragans conteyning the country of Burren, and is ploughlands after the like rate, (See the Barony of Tullagh) and O’Loghlen chiefe in the same.
