In this district there is a hill called 'the hill of Derk'. The word 'Derk' is got from 'Dearg' the Irish word for red because the country around is very bare.

In this district there is a hill called the "hill of Derk". The word "Derk" is got from "Dearg" the Irish word for red because the country around is very bare. It is a hill about 1500 feet high. Old people say that in the Penal Days Mass was celebrated there. Two holes cut into the stones show were the candles were put. A few years ago a man named Denis Harty found a big crucifix there when digging a trench.
In the immediate neigbhourhood of the hill there is a townsland called "Firmanagh" whch means the "Country of the Monks"
