Ballygurrane is the name of a Village and Townland in Castlegar, County Galway.
Coordinates; 53.307673 , -9.019720
Elevation; 93 feet
This Village was well populated but must have been decimated due to the Famine of Ireland,
Castlegar Church ( Saint Columba's ) was positioned to the south of here, prior to the 1800's or 19th Century.
It ran roughly East to West, across the Castlegar School road, around the modern-time homestead of the Kings.
Old maps suggest a large number of households here, while today, there is little to the East in terms of houses until one enters the townland of Pollkeen.
