The Shire of Lionsdale (Mundanely Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows B.C.) is located in the Principality of Tir Righ and a proud part of the Kingdom of An Tir. Nestled between the mountain ranges several miles from the coast, with its exquisite beauty and rolling farmland, Lionsdale is to many gentles a home away from home.
