Nóta
“Kinealuachan, or, as it is called in Irish, Cinel-Luachain, was a territory in Breifne as O’Dubhagain (Irish Topog. Poems) tells us. Our Annat confirms the accuracy of O’Donovan’s statement, viz. that this territory comprised the parish of Ougheragh” (Ann. Ult. [De Annatis Hiberniae] fo-nóta, 230]
