The valleys are fertile, and watered with rivulets, and the mountains contains inexhaustible stores of lead, iron, and copper ores, and coal mines. Potatoes, barley, rye, and wheat, are cultivated in small quantities, and oats in greater abundance. Chief river, the Shannon. 2 members are retutned to parliament. Chief town, Carrick. Pop. 105,976."
