2. Sean Reilig at Kilmacloo, Creeslough.
Written by James Trearty whose grandfather Denis Trearty, age 72, told him of it.
My grandfather told me that there was an old graveyard under the rocks in front of our house.It was dug up when he was young. He says that the old people said from it that the town- land got its name - Cill - mhic - luigh. Lugh was said to be a son of the man who had a fort - Dún - luigh -about five miles from us. There are no traces of this graveyard now.
