My home is situated in the townland of Muineal, Parish of Corlough, and Barony of Tullyhaw. There are six families in the townland, and thirty one people living in it, that is an average of five in each family. The family names are; Devine, Byrne, McGovern and Prior. McGovern is the most common family name. Three of the houses in the townland are thatched and three are slated. The townland's name Muinéal is an Irish word which means a neck.
