Administrative Details:

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 (“Pig’s Head�) has become Headborough. Baile na mBadach (“Churls’ Homestead�) has resolved itself into Snugborough, and Cnoc na Sceach (“Hill of the Bushes�) into Moore Hill!
