Local tradition has it that the castle on a crannóg in Lough Mellvin was built by a MacClancy chief to shelter his daughter from an epidemic of smallpox which was sweeping the land at the time. His efforts were in vain, however, as the young girl petted a bird which flew into the castle, caught the disease as a result, and died.
Kinlough (from the Irish Cionn Locha = head of the lake) is a pretty village in County Leitrim, Ireland at the junction of the R280 and R281 regional roads. It gets its name from its position at the head of Lough Melvin. It is situated about 2 miles from Bundoran, County Donegal, about 13 miles from Manorhamilton.
The village developed in the first half of the 18th century at the edge of Oakfield Estate, owned by the Johnston family. Kinlough village provided services to the surrounding rural areas.
