"Pinkman: Árd-Mionnáin = Height of the kid Ardmeenan lies about one mile South East of Ballinamore. Ardmoynen Fiant. Eliz. 5433. The word was sometimes written Ardminan. But, apparently, in O’Donovan’s time the middle syllable was made long, and left it as he found it. To-day the pronunciation is something like Ardmeennyaun. It is, probably, due to a corrupt local way of pronouncing the Irish word Mionnán. "
