your relatives probably lived in an area of South Roscommon which is about 10 miles from Athlone. Athlone is often cited because the births may have been registered is the nearest town. Confusion can emerge because this town is formally in another county (Westmeath), though some of it is in Roscommon. Athlone is on the river Shannon, which divides the town and is the dividing line between the two counties.
