Etymology

  • Coolenemarrowe - Calendar of Patent Rolls of James 265b (1613)
  • Colenemarowe - Ulster Inquisitions Car I $55 (1641)

Coolnamarrow (Irish: Cúil na Marbh) translates as ‘corner or angle of the dead’. We are not sure the correct meaning of this townland. There is evidence of flax holes which are well known to be very bad smelling like something which had died.

Former Residents :

  • Kettyle


At one time, from the 1920’s or possibly earlier, one of these farms was owned by the Kettyle family. James Kettyle was the first farmer in this area to diversify first into tomato growing and then into mushroom growing. Both were successful in the immediate post war years but then imports increased and the transport and marketing facilities here could not compete.
