n/a
"Pinkman: Cor-na-mbráthar = Hill of the Friars. Bráthair, a kinsman, a relative; a monk, a friar. Corrabraher and Currabraher appear on the Down Survey. Other ancient writings have those forms too, pointing to the Irish, Corr-a’-bhráthar, hill of the friar. And, according to O’Donovan, this is the correct form of the name. The townland lies on the east side of the Yellow River, on Slieve-an-Ierin, and about two miles north west of the Catholic Church at Aughnasheelan. "
