I have a multi point Townland file. I want to be able to remove duplicates within a radius of 3000 meters from each individual point??

I cannot simple remove duplicates as they are from various locations.

Eg. There may be five points called Castletown within a 4000m radius and I only want one.

However there may be another five points called Castletown 40,000m away (As more than one area is called Castletown) and I also only want to keep one of these within a 4000m radius of itself.

Therefore I would end up with two points called Castletown from two seperate locations.

Any ideas on whats the best way to do this?
