An Seabhac reports hearing from a shanachee that the correct name was Cathair Bhláthnaide, 'Bláthnaid's stone fort'. Bláthnaid was the daughter of the king of the Isle of Man. Cú Chulainn and Cú Roí fell out over who would have her hand. See Caherconree. Previously Ballyarkane Oughter in MV.   Caherbla is the 323rd highest place in Ireland.
