  2. The name of the town land I live in is Carramanagh. The name of the parish is Kill Cummin. The barony is Moycullen. There are about twenty five houses in it now and there were about twenty houses in it long ago. Nearly all the houses are slated and very few are thatched. The most common name is Meala. Some of the people know Irish. There are three old ruins of houses near the place. A great many people went to America from the place. There is a short song about the place.
