In Dinnseanchas 5 (1972–1973), pp. 101–113.
A consideration of the evidence for the name-form Carn Uí Néid (Mizen Head, Co. Cork). The original name is held to be Carn, the addition being a literary one of about 1100, the earlier form continuing in local usage until the present day. The townland was known in the 16th-17th century as Carn Uí Ghláimhín, from the proprietor. In the later period the headland itself was known as Ceann Charn or Ceann an Chairn.
