“O'Donohue's Paison is a steep rock, nearly thirty feet high, so called from a chieftain of gigantic stature, who is supposed to have consigned his enemies to this barren spot. His celebrated white charger has also a local record in another rock, resembling a horse, close to the Mucross shore, named O'Donohue's Horse.”
