"Pinkman: Coradh-bhuidheachair = Weir of the yellow water. Joyce renders this name Cor-buidheachair hill of the yellow clay, and goes on to suggest that the name may have something to do with a jaundice well – buidhe, yellow. The word buidheachar was sometimes used to denote jaundice. But the townland lies along the Yellow River – once named Geirctheach – a river that takes its name from the yellow water that flows into it from the namy boggy streams on Slieve-an-Ierin. And the place is so called from a weir or dam across the river at this point, and not from a cor or round hill. The Down Survey writes the name Corroboigher, Caroboiher, and a Royal Commission Report of 1821-1825 has Carrowbeagher. This townland is in Ballinamore Parish. "
