This is a Townland in the Civil Parish of Achonry, Barony of Leyny, County Sligo, Ireland.[1]

Is Baile Fearainn an áit seo i bParóiste Dlí Achadh Conaire, i mBarúntacht Luíne, i gContae Shligigh, Éire.[1]

It appears under several names in records — Coolraver, Coolraiver, Collrover — as well as under the alternate form Cloonraver, Cloonrawer (An Chluain Ramhar).

It’s hard to get an accurate idea of Catholic Parish boundaries compared to townland boundaries, but the townland seems to be within the parish of Curry (An Choraidh). Note that there is also a Curry townland.

Births, Deaths and Marriages are registered at Tobar an Choire which appears in English as either Tobercurry or Tubbercurry.


An Choill Ramhar means “The Thick Wood”. The alternate name, An Chluain Ramhar, means “The Lush Meadow”. The basic meaning of ramhar is “fat, thick”, used here to indicate luxuriant growth.[2][3][4]
