    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:
    Léirítear an fo-bhaile Knockvorlagh SO (1838 ‘Knockoorlagh’ Old Map:AL) ar an gcnoc 255m i dtuaisceart an bhaile fearainn. Ní léir a cheartfhoirm Ghaeilge — b’fhéidir Cnoc Fhornocht “the hill of Fornocht (eilimint a chiallaíonn féin “bare hill”)” le díshamhlú -n-r-n- > -n-r-l-. Tá lomán carraige ar bharra an chnoic seo (www.epa.ie). Cf. samplaí eile de fornocht “bare hill” ar fud na tíre agus an struchtúr céanna in bf Cnoc Fhornocht (#23176) i gCiarraí.

    Ach b’fhiú Cnoc an Fhuarlaigh “the hill of the freshet” a chur i gcás chomh maith — cf. 1654c ‘Knockforlagh’ faoi bf Cnoc na Raithní (#28179) i dTulaigh Ó mBuí. Cf. bf An Fuarlach (#52212) i Loch Garman (pléite in Ó Crualaoich, Logainmneacha na hÉireann IV s.n. Worlough; cf. FGB fuarlach).
