Heritage

At the townland of Cullentragh is a crossroads overlapping a section of the Tochar Padraig. During famine times, local people would do any work to provide for their families, often being paid in oatmeal as a substitute for money. Consequently the roads they worked on became known as ‘Stirabout Roads’.
