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.

Wonder if Gregory Campbell and Jim Allister can explain those names?

It’s not the name that’s the problem there. What a place!
