Notes

Now Pollphail Village (a deserted village built in 1970s for unrealised industrial activity), it was a small settlement at time of OS 6" 1st edn. The name presumably initially applied to the small bay (poll) on which is sits. Nearby is Cnoc Pollphail, on which is an early medieval chapel with no known name.
