"Pinkman: Bun-Díomhaoin = Useless or unprofitable end or bottom. The Irish word, díomhaoin, which means idle, is sometimes applied to land that lies idle, because it is of little use for tillage. Bundiveen in Drumkeeran Parish, is a small narrow piece of land, lying along the western shore of Lough Allen. "
