+ Corballintackin does not appear in the Ordnance map, but Curr does, and it is conjectured that Curr is a corruption of the first syllable of the word.

*Acorr certainly represents the modern townland of Curr, or part of it. Ballintackin was an ancient name of the district, in that part of the parish, as shown on the map of 1609.

submitted by Rob D - The Hearth Money Roll for Dungannon 1666 has a parish called Ballieeloge. I think it could now be Ballyclog but some of the townlands have shifted parish according to seanruad.
