    Féach an nóta ‘Do tionnsgnadh an leabhar so do sgriobhadh le Criosdoir mac Edbard mc Gearilt [sic] a cCluinbroc 28. Iulij 1651’ ar chóip de ‘Foras Feasa ar Éirinn’ in LS Marsh Z 3.1.7 1r (www.isos.ie).

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:

    1. Killeen River SO is teora theas don bhaile fearainn seo: cf. Killeen Grove SO agus Killeen Br[idge] SO < An Coillín “the little wood”.
    2. Léirítear an fo-bhaile Aghreena SO thuas ar an gcnoc i lár an bhaile fearainn ach ní léir a cheartfhoirm Ghaeilge — Achadh (Críonaigh) (?) “field (of brushwood)”, b’fhéidir? D’fhéadfaí Áth (Críonaigh) (?) “ford (of brushwood)” a chur san áireamh más rud é go ndearna sé tagairt d’áit trasnaithe ar an abhainn faoina bhun (cf. an dá Ford SO).
