      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, October 14, 1824


      COALS.

      There are in Ireland eight coal districts, viz:
      1. The Antrim, which occurs close to Fairhead.
      2. The Tyrone, situated immediately to the south of Lough Neagh.
      3. The Fermanagh, which occurs to the north of Lough Erne.
      4. The Connaught, which occupies considerable portions of the counties of
      Roscommon, Sligo, Leitrim and Cavan.
      5. The Monaghan, situated to the West of teh town of Carrickmacross.
      6. The Leinster, which extends through portions of the Counties of Kilkenny,
      Queen's County and Carlow.
      7. The Tipperary, situated between the river Nure and the town of Cashel.
      8. The Munster, which occupies portions of the Counties of Clare, Limerick,
      Kerry and Cork.
      Hence, it appears, that out of the thirty-two counties of Ireland, coal
      is to be found in no less than sixteen.
      The Irish coal is of two kinds, the bituminous or flaming, and the
      stone coal, or non-flaming.
      The whole of the coal districts situated to the North of a line drawn
      from Dublin to Galway, contains bituminous coal; those to the South of that
      line contain stone coal.
