At one time the towland of Corbally was owned by the O'Sullivans. They sold the land afterwards to different people. Our farm is situated in Corbally about a league from the town of Killorglin. It is so called because of its many twists and turns.
Some of the fields in our farm have Irish names. The field which is nearest to the dwelling house is called 'pairc na gainmhidhe' or 'sandy field'.
"Páirc a Colacháin"
A field is situated below this again called 'Pairc a Leasa' or Fort Field.
'Pairc an aeurach' or airy field.
