Tippperary - Limerick Border
My 3greatgrandfather George ROWLES was in the GV for Cloonteen, parish of
Doon, Co. Limerick (which is now in Cappamore parish) and he was also
listed there in the TA of 1828, and I have never seen a trace of him or others
of the name anywhere in the area. BUT, his son, also named George, who
emigrated to the US in 1850, was referred to in his obituary thusly, "the
deceased was born in Co. Tipperary, Ireland in 1823."
Now I know that the parish of Doon straddles the border but I haven't found
the Rowles name mentioned in the Tip part, so I wonder if people were even
sure of where the boundary was. and it would be interesting to know if
the border ever changed/moved in that area.
I'd also appreciate any tips to places to search in Tipperary records to
see if they actually were there at any time. They were definitely Irish and
Catholic, in spite of the English name which was a challenge for people to
spell and turns up in church records as Rouls, Roulds, Rowls, etc.

I have read that on parts of the Limerick/Tipperary boundary along where
Emly RC Parish is located that the boundary has moved at times and where
some of the townlands are now located in County Limerick at times they
were in County Tipperary. I am wondering, Janet, if during all your
research if you found this to be true?
