Watergrasshill. This website is apparently produced by a local group obviously very concerned
about the ecology of the Watergrasshill area. It seems the Cork County
Council have selected this area for a new County superdump.
There are photos of some wooded areas in and around Watergrasshill, and you
may contact the Watergrasshill Community Association if you wish to support
their efforts, but for concern of genealogists, this site contains a 1655
Down Survey map by William Petty, among other maps of interest for the
Lisgoold and Midleton areas. Submitted by Anita in Genexchange County
