and it is called Lodge House. Artonagh is also called the Grove. There is a song about it taken from a song called the Knights of Drumlane.
"As I walked by a Grove, where fond-lovers rove,
The place took the bright hue of morn,
In a bloomy sweet shade I beheld a fair maid
Sitting under a snowy white thorn
Her eyes they were blue, and her heart it was true
And her tears they kept falling like rain,
Alas, she did say must I part you this day,
My gallant brave knight of Drumlane
There is a holy well in Derintiney called St Mogue's. It is thought he was a monk of Drumlane Abbey"
