I purpose this evening to present to the Society a short review of the General Topographical Index of Ireland, published in connection with the Census of 1901, setting forth briefly some of the features of public interest in that work. As in the case of Irish personal names, which I have dealt with in my works on Surnames and Christian names in Ireland, so in the names of Places in the Topographical Index we have various stages of the history of this country reflected as in a mirror.
