Pronunciation Audio File
The present parish has some names of historic significance. Along the northern frontier of the parish, bordering on the Bride, a number of modern names, of the usual more or less meaningless character, have within the past generation half-submerged the ancient nomenclature. Ceann Muiche (â€œPigâ€™s Headâ€?) has become Headborough. Baile na mBadach (â€œChurlsâ€™ Homesteadâ€?) has resolved itself into Snugborough, and Cnoc na Sceach (â€œHill of the Bushesâ€?) into Moore Hill!
