Index of Coastguard Stations in 19th.century Ireland

North = N., South = S., East = E., West = W.,
Point = Pt., Near =Nr., Mouth = Mh., Harbour = Hr., River = R., Opposite = Op.

Placenames of the period are bracketed, e.g. Power Head [Poor Head]. Power Head is the name of the location; Poor Head was its name in the 19th.Century and beyond. In some cases the names in brackets were those used by the English Coastguard officials of the time and often represented an attempted Anglicisation of a Gaelic placename

This is a great list for these counties, i'm wondering if there is any where this index has been done for Co. Galway. I recently discovered (from the 1842 OS map Co Galway http://www.galway...842OSMaps/) that there was a coastguard station on our family land. The land in question is located in the townland of Ross on the shores of Ballynakill Bay. Ross Point is noted on the map. The nearest coastguard station to this is Cleggan. I have looked at a lot of the Coastguard records online from Kew Archive but haven't found any inforamtion on it yet, so an index like the about would help me out, any advice/information would be greatly appreciated
