      Quinultagh, near Dunmore, is derived from Ultach - an Ulsterman. Along the
      Western and Southern slopes of Sliabh Dart there are many thickly-populated
      villages. The advent of this population to the locality synchronises with the
      Plantation of Ulster hundreds of years ago, and these people, who are still

      parts of Ulster, who, dispossessed of their farms and homesteads in the Black
      North, took up their residence on this heather-growing range, which reminded
      them of their native homes amid the dark mountains of Tyrone and Donegal. They
      still cherish many traditions of the olden times, when their forefathers had
      to carry long dirks to defend themselves at fairs and markets, and of the
      faction fights when, standing together like one man, they always gained the day.

      burned the town and raised the walls to the ground. In A.D. 1177 Milo de
      Cogan occupied Dunmore with 40 men at arms, 200 horse soldiers, and 300 archers.
      King Rory O'Connor after a successful attack put this army to fight ; and the
      English did not encamp until they reached the other side of the Shannon at
      Lanesboro. In A.D. 1558, Captain Mordaunt led an English army from Lanesboro
      through Roscommon. It is recorded that the English soldiers raised a mutiny
      against the captain in the town, and to be marched them back again.
