"Ballinagh, a market town in the parish of Ballintemple but chiefly in that of Kilmore, barony of Clonmahon, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, 4 miles (S.W.) from Cavan on the road to Granard; containing 702 inhabitants. This town was entirely destroyed by fire in a disturbance which took place in 1794; it consists at present of two streets crossing each other at right angles, and in 1831 contained 135 houses, the greater part of which are thatched, and of which three only are in the parish of Ballintemple."
