The Irish form on the Discovery map is different from that found at logainm.ie: Cnoc an Óir, 'hill of the gold'. Knockanore is said to have been the scene of a great slaughter in ancient times. [OSNB] Tis said that there was a great monument erected in memory of the slaughter in the spot where the trigl. Station stands; it was called Lact na Fulla. [OSNB] This battle is mentioned in O'Sullevan Beare's Historiae Catholicae Iberniae Compendium. The tradition of a great battle is based on the intrepretation of the name as Cnoc an Áir [OSNB, OG], 'hill of the slaughter'.
