The land of this Parish is divided into square fields. Some of these fields bear ancient names such as Caher. It is handed down from generation to generation that this was an old burying ground. The remains of human bones were found there some time ago. It contains six acres which is under tillage for over two hundred and fifty years. The ruins on what is called a Múcán is still to be seen. It belongs at present to a farmer called Michael Lynch.


This was told to me by my father Michael Laide of Droumature who is fifty four years of age
