Hi Laura,

Delighted to hear that my info was of use! I enjoyed the 'investigation' and it is interesting that while thousands of tourists visit Killarney every year and also seek their homplace while in Ireland, you are one of the few who can claim that you're home when you get to Killarney!!

Here's a link to a free mapping website - I've zoomed in on Killarney for you and you can see Ball Alley Lane off High Street. This is the modern map, but using the menu at the bottom right of the screen you can also see a recent aerial photo (ORTHO 2005) and you can even step back to the older maps from the mid 1800s (HISTORIC 6") and from around 1900 (HISTORIC 25") when it was called Ball Court Lane...

Best wishes from Ireland,
Rory
