[Knocknagull]
"In the course of the last 20 years large quantities of human bones were found by labourers when tilling the ground. It is considered by the inhabitants that a great slaughter at some remote period has taken place here from the consequence of which the townland took its name. Knocknagull - The hill of crying or lamentation." [Desc. Rem.];
