When someone asked my dad years ago
Where are ya going
“I’m going to kilraughts (pronounced  kill Rats ) in the morning and then I’m going to kilmore in the evening “

Another strange name and very misleading

Hoar rock In skerries

Reminds me of the man driving through Tyrone and was stopped by the brits:

Brit "where have you been?"
Local "I've been to Killyman" (Kill a man)
Brit "and where you going to now?"
Local "I'm going to Killmore"
Cover me in chocolate and feed me to the lesbians

It never used to for me, but we brought my nephew to a game in Ballybofey a few years ago. He read the program and started laughing. Hey look, he’s from Glens-willy. Juvenile humour, but he kept repeating it quite a bit during the day until it stuck in my head. So now I have a smirk to myself when I hear Glenswilly mentioned.

There's a Sallowilly and a Stranagalwilly not too far from Sawel.

Newtwopothouse is outside Mallow

There is another village on the Cork to Dublin road called Skeheenarinky which is a dog's dinner of a translation of sceichin na rince , the dancing bush

Badoney Parish in Tyrone always gets me

Altacamcosy
Carnanransy
Alwories

Then the A5 features
Legacurry
& neighbouring Raw

Errigal Parish has a place reserved for Buckfast drinkers
Lurganboy

Bockets is another one
