In ainneoin nár thángthas ar shampla den sloinne seo Rivers (Brit. Sur. 273) i gcomharsanacht an bhf. seo go díreach (atá tuairim is dhá mhíle slí siar ó theorainn thiar Phort Láirge), ní fios nach faoi anáil Mountrivers eile, atá tuairim is deich mílte slí soir ón dteorainn chéanna (contae Phort Láirge, bar. Decies without Drum, p. Affane, SO 21, 29) atá an t-ainm thuas. Tá léirithe ag Hubert Galwey mar a lonnaigh muintir Rivers i dtimpeallacht Dhún Garbhán (atá cóngarach go maith don Mountrivers eile seo) sa tréimhse 1730-39. (Galwey 1979 54,-5).
