    I'm looking for a map or detail for old monasteries or graveyards in tipperary.

    I've looked into the Old maps dated approx 1837 I think, in the national archives, and there's a lot of priests laghts close to my house. Laghts means burial ground. There has also been some findings in a bog not too far away, at fadden bog a while back, one was a bound book which was handed over to the national museum. There was a Bishop Michael croke or troke living in a Townsland house nearby. It's based in the above I think there may have been a monastery of sorts close by.

    Any ideas or links?
