The following information was acquired from the CD book Slater's Commercial Directory of Ireland, 1846. It is part of the Trinity college of Dublin Library Collection.

Each Townland listed has a brief description of its attributes, a listing of the Nobility, Gentry and Clergy, Major Public Office Holders, Schools, Churches, Professionals, Trades, Hotels, Post Offices, Available Coach Routes, Public Institutions and a variety of other miscellaneous information.

The Towns in County Roscommon that are covered in this Book CD are Ballinasloe, Boyle, Carrick-On-Shannon, Castlerea, Elphin, Roscommon and Strokestown.

The Coffey Surname or its Variations were found in the following Townlands: Ballinasloe (Coffy) and Castlerea (Coffey).
