There is a place near Kildangan called Killeen which means "a little church." Killeen is also called Laynamona because it is surrounded by a bog.
There is also a place near Monasterevan called "Sumia." It got its name from a tunnel which runs under it and drains all the surrounding land.
Susie's bush is situated at the Green Road near Monasterevan. Legend says that a girl named Susie was seen there.

Another story tells us that one night a man named Fitzgerald, (who lived on the other side of the road) was passing the bush one night and thinking he saw something stirring in it, he went over and to his surprise and fright he saw a man in the bush.
When he awoke next morning he found he could not stir his right hand nor his right side; he died a few days after.
