"Pinkman: Eanach-Mhic-Chonmhaighe = Mac Conway’s marsh. Though Annaghmaconway appears on the Ordnance list, O’Donovan gave both Annaghmaconway and Annaghmaconboy. The Down Survey has Annaghmaconvy. Mac Chonmhaighe, means, literally, son of the hound of the plain. Among the ancient Irish, dog was a complimentary term; to call a hero a dog was as high a compliment, as it would be to call him a lion at the present day. Accordingly we find in honour among them such names as Cú Midhe, Cu Mumhan, Cu Connacht, Cu Bladhma, Cú Maighe, etc."
