The Anglo-Normans were responsible for the original development of many towns in Ireland but, unusually, they are not thought to have founded any in County Longford. They established three boroughs in Longford however, at Granard (an existing settlement and the oldest of the urban centres in County Longford), Lanesborough (then Athleague) and at Lissardowlan, which is located to the east of Longford Town. These boroughs had the legal privileges of towns but the urban functions of large villages.  The Anglo-Norman boroughs at Athleague, Granard and Lissardowlan declined in importance during the fifteenth century, and were eventually abandoned.

The castle bawne town and lands of Liserdawle with 8 Catrons of land  were granted in teh patent rolls from James I to Baron Delvin in 1620
