(pronounced by some kinowl)
The Moor of Bannow is more or less enclosed by four roads - the High Road, The Moor Road, The Moor Road (one at East and one at West) and another road which has no particular name. This road runs through a small area of the moor which is called Kinoulty. Natives speak of one house there as Murphy's of Kinoulty and the close by cottage as Browns of Kinoulty.

During the Summer months - from mid April to September the roads of Bannow are always trysting ground of travelling folk - especially the Green Road. These come in companies with tents, some with caravans, and dokeys - the Cashs, Connors, OBriens, in particular about 15th August - known as 15th of Cullenstown when Cullenstown is headquarters of pattern.
