EDIT: Note that "kil" may not be "church" as is usually translated, because the English may have heard "coill" meaning "woodland", and wrote it down as "kil". It's estimated at least 700 of the "kil(l)-" placenames in Ireland, usually taken to mean "church", may actually refer to woods that no longer exist. (P.W. Joyce, The Origin and History of Irish Names of Places)

From Middle Irish togaid, from Old Irish do·goa, from Proto-Celtic *to-guso-, from Proto-Indo-European *ǵews-. Compare Scottish Gaelic tagh.
togh (present analytic toghann, future analytic toghfaidh, verbal noun toghadh, past participle tofa)
1. choose, select
3. sort, gather
togha m (“pick, choice”)
Radical: togh Lenition: thogh Eclipsis: dtogh
Note: Some of these forms may be hypothetical. Not every possible mutated form of every word actually occurs.
"togh" in Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla, An Gúm, 1977, by Niall Ó Dónaill.

So, I ended up not getting much out of the Parish Priest when I went to see him. He said that I could find something interesting in the library - in the Local Studies section - if I knew what to look for. He told me there was a box with one particular edition of the Leitrim Gazette; one that had been "recalled from the shops" by the printers before it got sold to the public.
The library always gets a copy of the local paper (which the printers apparently forgot to recall). This particular copy was dated July 22nd, 1982. The articles covered were the usual social events, pie recipes and adverts for animal feeds. I got bored and was nearly about to give up looking through it, when I found the rather ominous story about Kilmatogh Community's demise....

93 Guidelines leaflet? on Mon Jul 18, 2016 10:17 am
Do you have the leaflet showing the guidelines and criteria that the form mentions, MetaMur? It's not on Scribd or have you yet to upload it?MetaMur wrote:Applicants for Registered membership should carefully read the current guidelines and criteria for Registered membership in the leaflet provided.

Some good news is: I've heard back from the planning section of Leitrim County Council who still have the development file for the Community in Kilmatogh.
They scanned a copy for me of the proposal (or should I say defense!) of the development written by Malcolm Cassin himself sometime during 1974. Here it is: https://www.scribd.com/document/318928300/XAUL-Community-Planning-Document
BTW thank you very much MetaMur for posting your copy of the XUAL application form, it makes for interesting reading. Obviously they were after only trained scientists for registered membership -not the Average Joe, as we surmised earlier. I wonder if the Leitrim Gazette article printed in the recalled issue was talking about the registered members in the Community when it stated: "He focused on marginalized people that society wanted nothing to do with: the drunks, drug addicts, and the homeless." I highly doubt it. Any thoughts?

That's a really XUAL (KOOL!) development file you got from Leitrim County Council there, John!

BTW, I got a letter from the Guards this morning, they're not willing to discuss the matter of the fire in Kilmatogh that killed everyone in the XUAL Community that night (See their letter here: https://www.scribd.com/document/322388434/Letter-From-Gardai)
In the envelop they sent me out 'biographical affidavit' files which were submitted by the original founders of the Community as Character Evidence. Interesting reading. I'll try to scan them to pdf and then post a link on here when I get them uploaded to Scribd, so everyone else can read them as well.
