"Pinkman: Ceathramhain-bheag = Small quarter. Cartrbonbeg lies on the west shore of Lough Allen, in the very south of Drumkeeran Parish. It joins Co. Roscommon. There was an old abbey in this townland, called Teampall-na-gcailleach-ndubh, church of the nuns. The ruins of this church may still be seen on a peninsula in Lough Allen. Tradition says that these nuns were expelled from the place in the time of Cromwell. "
