About: One of nine essays collected in this book which celebrates the basic administrative unit of settlement in Ireland. This particular chapter details the history of Lacken ‘towneland’, in the civil parish of Baltyboys, barony of Talbotstown Lower, county of Wicklow. The townland, once over 1500 acres in extent, lost almost half of this beneath the waters of the Poulaphuca Reservoir. The sense of loss is still palpable.
