  1. 1. There are three forges I know in this parish, namely Tom Flynn's, Andy Drum's, and Mac Donalds. Tom Flynn's forge is situated in Inkhorn Cootehill, Andy Drum's is situated on Pig Market in Bridge St. Cootehill. Mac Donalds forge is situated in Drumbarkey on main road to Bailieborough and near a stream.
    The three forges are roofed with boards and felt. They generally have double doors. The belows are made of timber joined together with chamois leather at the sides.
