Eanach
NAME Is in the original Irish Eanach, which signifies a moor, swamp, fen or marsh. The old church of this Parish is situated on level ground in the Townland of Aunagh, from which the parish takes it’s name…This church is about six centuries old; it stands in a graveyard in which many interments are made. There is no Saint nor Saint’s Day remembered in connection with this church. About half a furlong to the West of this church there are the remains of a Caher or stone fort, and at the South East of it are eight stones of which six are laid prostrate and two are standing upright and placed as if forming the head and foot of the grave, being ten feet two inches asunder.

Paróiste Eanaigh
Eanach .i. cluain, áit fhairsing oscailte, meadow. Sa chás so is talamh chlochach gharbh é ach fairsinge go leor ann. Tá an ainm ar bhf agus par. Béim an ghutha ar an ‘ach’ ag sean-daoine. 'Anna' adeirtear anois leis sa Bhéarla. Ní chuala riamh 'An t-' roimh an ainm. Is áirithe go raibh aidiacht nó focal éigin eile i ndiaidh ‘Eanach’ agus go bhfuil san dearmhadtha. [Sean-nóta: Eanach: ənax – béim ar an ‘ax’.] (An Seabhac)
