Conorspark – Connors Park – Páirc Chonchúir

Very little information was available on the origin of the name of this townland.  The name in the Ordnance Survey Name Books was written as Connors Park and Conor’s Park, while George D.H. Kirkaldy and Rev. Francis Coghlan wrote it as Connorspark.  The Placenames Commission currently records it as Páirc Chonchúir.  In the 1840s the townland contained all arable land, a Danish fort and shrubbery.
