There is an old whinny hill and its name is Sugar Loaf. It is near Dancnaire and it can be seen from Carrickcarnoran hill beside Greaghglass. There is a big hill and they call it the Point of the Graip.

There is a big rock a couple of fields from us and it is called Cliford's rock. It was an old woman called Kate Cliford who owned it.

We have a field which we call the Island field and the reason why we call it that is because there is a river right round it and a tree in the middle.

We have a field and it is called Mullan's field, because my grandfather bought from a man the name of Mr. Mullan. The field is very steep at every side, and there is a house on the top of it.
