Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballymagauran is a village and townland in County Cavan, Ireland. It lies on the border with County Leitrim, within the parish of Templeport and barony of Tullyhaw on the Ballinamore to Ballyconnell road. In medieval times, Ballymagauran was the chief seat of the McGovern clan, who were lords of Tullyhaw. A medieval Duanaire or Poembook belonging to them is the oldest such surviving book in Ireland and describes various incidents at Ballymagauran. The Vikings may also have been in the area as the pommel of an inlaid Viking sword (Petersen Type H) dating from c.900 A.D. has been excavated from a fort on the shore of Ballymagauran Lake.show more
