- According to St. Adamnan in his life of Columbkille the word (Drimholme) means the Ridge of Tuama (a pagan celebrity associated with the locality).In this parish there was a celebrated monastery known as Drimholme Monastery. This was founded by St. Columba over which he placed St. Ernan as Abbot.On the top of Drimholme hill stood a large cross. The eminence still bears the name Mullagh-na-Croish (Mullach na Croise).
