Notes

Watson (1926, 165) states that the nearby farm of Killymingan (a distance of 1km) is G 'cill m'Fhinnéin' and as this contains a Gaelic hypocoristic form of the personal name represented by -gunzeon in Kirkgunzeon, it is likely that the farm-name is a reflex of an alternative name for the nearby church dedicated to the same saint.
