About Lisacul

Lisacul - Corragoggil

Coming into Lisacul

Lisacul, a small village in northwest Roscommon, is made up of several townlands: Aghadrestan, Carrownaknockaun, Cloonacolly, Cloonargid, Clooncah, Cloontowart, Corracoggil North, Corracoggil South, Creevy, Curraghhard, Curraghsallagh, Derry, Drummad, Figh, Kilrooan, Kiltybranks, Kiltymane and Lissydaly. Its name in Irish is Lios an Choill, meaning The Fort of the Hazel Tree.

The 2006 census records a population of 734 but we like to think we’re bigger than that. Certainly, we seem to do a lot more than that small number suggests – just have a look at the clubs and societies pages. Most of the pages and posts on this website record what’s going on now, but we’re in the process of setting up some other pages to record what happened in the past – and we’ve got a lot of past in Lisacul: our oldest structures – seven ring forts – date back to the Iron Age.
