"The nearer lake rejoices in the anglicised name of Eekenohoolikeaghaun, the further is Derreenadarodia."
When we were small boys, we used to do a bit of rock climbing on the cliffs on the way into Lough Derreendarodia.(& party afterwards in Doc Ryans, just so you'll know our generation) I think we called the crag Ozymandias, dont know why. Last time I looked 10 years ago the carabiner was still stuck in a crack there.
Anyway one of th local farmers told me the name was anglicised from Loch Dereen dá Bó deag. i.e 12 cow lake. The legend involved one finding a herb that grew near the lake which enabled you to see the 12 cows and turn them back into 12 beautifull maidens or something. I have forgotten.
