"Pinkman: The name is now often used as an alternative for the ancient parish of Innismagrath. “Innismagrath parish,” writes O’Donovan in his letters on Leitrim Count, “is called Ionas (not inis) Mac Ratha, which is said to signify (locally) the island of Mac Grath. The island from which the name is taken lies in Lough Allen.”"
