"Pinkman: Áth-Draighin Ford of the blackthorn or sloe-tree. Though Adereen is written on the Ordnance Survey list, it is not a correct representation of the Irish form; O’Donovan states that the Irish local interpretation was Áth-Draighin, and not Áth-Doirín. The old Parish Books write the name “Adreen”; and so the people of the district write it and pronounce it to-day… There is Lough Adereen in North Leitrim. Its Irish from is Loch-a’-Doirín, Lough or lake of the oak-wood. "
