Oops! You're right of course, Troy. There's only the one
Ballinasloe - Be/al A/tha an tSlua (famed for its horse fair
and the king of the tinkers fight). It's due to my perception
of Roscommon in relation to Galway - when I think of
Roscommon, I think of Boyle and north Roscommon
(Lough Key, Keadue, Ballyfarnan) because that's where
I normally head when I'm there. There is a bit of the county
sticking out towards Galway sure enough, 'to/in Ros Coma/in'
I think it's called :-).
