"Drumgoon, a parish partly in the barony of
Tullaghgarvey, but chiefly in that of Clonkee, county of Cavan and province of
Ulster, on the road from Kingscourt to Clones, containing, with the post-town
of Cootehill, 12,029 inhabitants. It comprises, according to the Ordnance
survey, 15,474 statute acres, including 604 under water, of which 8122 are
under water. Slate and lead ore around here, but have been only partly worked;
and the linen manufacture was formerly carried on to a great extent, but of
late it has much declined : there is a large flour-mill and bakery."
