An Seabhac: Paróiste an Oileáin, Paróiste Oileáin Ciarraighe [agus go minic ‘Leáing Ciarraighe’]. In aimsir na Gaeilge im óige deirtí ‘Paróiste an Oileáin’ leis. Níl Gaedhilg ó dhúchas sa cheanntar so le blianta fada – fiú ag sean-daoine agus dá bhrí sin níl foghair Ghlge. Oileán Ciarraighe: Ní hoileán é ach inse cois abhann mar a raibh an caisleán. Is dóigh liom gur ar ionad an chaisleáin (castle view anois) a bhí an ainm ‘Oileáin’. An tOileán a bhíodh de ghnáth air ag lucht Glge. Aonach an Oileáin (.i. aonach capall uair sa bhliain) agus a bhí iomráidteach mar aonach fiú ag Muintir Dhuibhneach, mar bhíodh ‘Bartlemy Fair’ i gCo. Corcaighe agus Aonach a’Phuic i gCill Orglan.
