Ordnance Survey Letters by John O'Donovan and Eugene Curry, 1839

Parish of Kilcorney. Footnotes.

1. i.e., the Barony of Burren.

2. Now the Castle of Crughwell near the Chapel of Carren in the Parish of Carran. See my letter on that Parish.

3. Cnoc Dloghain in the Caithreim but incorrectly. It is no other place than Dangan Hill or Cnoc-a-Daingin in the Parish of Drumcreehy, which lies behind, i.e., to the west of Crughwell.

4. As above.

5. Sliabh Cairn, now Slieve Carn in the Parish of Oghtmama.

6. Hy-Donghaile is the tribe name of the O’Grady’s.

7. The Caithreim has “westwards to Gleann Caoin” but this is certainly a mistake, for Gleann Caoin lies in the Parish of Killineeboy to the southeast of Slieve Carn. In one copy of the Caithreim, Gleann Caoin is omitted, and it is simply stated that Donogh O’Brien was marching westwards when he was killed.
