While Rory's explanations about split townlands are correct, I'm doubt
that a townland would be split by a *road*. The road itself surely
belongs to a townland, either to the split townland (in which case the
townland isn't split) ot to a townland in-between (in which case
Rory's explanations apply).

If you're not sure, please provide a link to the area for us to look at.
