Was always told that Ballyhackamore was the townload of the big bum...

Not sure if true.

Ballyhackamore (Irish: Baile an Chacamair, meaning 'townland of the slob land or mud flat')[

I’ve never heard of a cacamar. I suppose if you were a bit embarrassed about a town being called something like Baile an Chaca Mhóir or really anything related to shite, you would change the name to a random otherwise unused word and claim it means something less offensive.
