The mountainous district of Sliabh Luachra on which Teamhair Luachra was situated is well known and forms a Roman Catholic parish comprising the Parish of Kilcummin and a considerable portion of that of Killaha. But Slieve Luachra was originally a far more extensive district than it is considered at present. Dr Smith shews it as East of the Blackwater River in Cork. And the engraved map from the Down Survey places a part of the Mountain of Sliabh-Luach (sic) in the Parish of Ballincaslane, in the Barony of Trughanacmy. OD
