SeanRuad Townland Database has moved
The database was the work of the late John Broderick. It was brought to the online research community with the help of Ed Finn who provided software and server access alongside the www.leitrim-roscommon.com site.
Long before his untimely death, Ed promised John that so long as he had a web server online, the database would remain active.
John's family chose to keep the well-known domain name going after his death in 2001, but it lapsed last week. Ed has, therefore, moved the database to a new url. It is up and running, in all its familiar livery, at http://www.thecore.com/seanruad.
I know I'm not alone in being very pleased that this vital database can still be accessed online by Irish genealogists. Many, many thanks to Ed Finn.
