    the little church

    Is deacair leaganacha béarlaithe de cillín agus coillín a idirdhealú, agus uaireanta ní mór dul i muinín leis an bhfianaise seandálaíochta. Tá tuairisc san Fhardal Seandálaíochta ar an reiligín (‘Burying Meadow’) agus ar umar an tseanteampaill a luann Ó Corragáin in History and Antiquities of the Diocese of Ossory II 151.

    Is dócha go bhfuil dul amú ar an gCorragánach nuair a deir gur ‘Killeenbogg (Cillín bog)’ an seanainm a bhí air seo, áfach (loc. cit.); is é ‘-begg’ < beag “small” an litriú atá in Book of Survey and Distribution agus Acts of Settlement and Explanation araon.
