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.
