Prior to the plantation the area was known as Clonmullen or‘Cluain Maoláin’ in Gaelic, meaning ‘The Hillside Meadow’, and was occupied by the O’Rourke clan.
The present name in the Irish, ‘Cluainín Uí Ruairc‘, which translates as ‘O’Rourke’s Little Meadow’, also reflects that history.
The emphasis on ‘meadow’ in both names perhaps indicating that the location was a sought-after area of fertile farmland
