If you are willing to come and see it, and bring a bus load with you, it's in my place. Only a fiver a head. Well worth it. Awsome sight.

carraigoran ...... never heard of it referred to as Odran's Rock ...... although I can now see the connection.

All sounds like someone pulling you leg giving that name ...

I've a feeling someone went a bit mad with an Irish/English dictionary, Carrigoran would be 2 words, Carrig and Oran, the first being Irish for Rock and the second being another version of Odhran, I've never heard anyone reference it as Odhran's Rock and I've spent a lot of time down there (my grandparents were there for a while)
