Greaghaverrin, County Fermanagh

Origin

Of uncertain origin

Background

Craigywarren in Co. Antrim is derived from Creag Bharráin Barrán's rock/rocky hill’, but the current townland name appears to contain the definite article, ruling out the possibility of a proper noun for the qualifying element. The element barrán ‘stalk, thorns, mountain tops’ is a possibility, in the form Gréach a’ Bharrán ’rough pasture of the bundle’.
