Help need to identify townlands in the Barony of Islands

I am trying to locate 5 townlands that reside in the Barony of Islands. This is taken from a 1751 land indenture.
• KNOPPEGS
• CAHERIA EAST
• BALLYCLOUGHUE
• BALLYACHORIG
• KNOCKNENAGH
This indenture is signed by John Purdon, William Purdon and Christopher O’Brien

Thank you.

Re: Census of Clare 1861

Paddy,

Thank you for posting this information on the 1851 & 1861 Clare Census. This is very interesting. This helps me with the big picture regarding consolidation of farms and immigration.

Re: Irish Graveyard Etiquette

Margaret,
Thank you. I enjoyed your personal story about your family vault and how the neighbors prepared the grave.
