 -This Holand line goes directly to George Washington -

A county town is the 'capital' of a county in the Republic of Ireland or the United Kingdom. County towns are usually the location of administrative or judicial functions, or established over time as the de facto main town of a county. The concept of a county town eventually became detached from its original meaning of where the county administration is based.
