The locality=subtownland tag can be used to name places within the townland boundary of an "official" townland. This tag only applies to place names in Ireland.

How to map

Place a node at the appropriate location and add a place=locality and locality=subtownland together with name=*, name:ga=* (if known) and optionally also wikipedia=* or note=* etc.
