Adderville

Adderville was once part of an area known as Doonally. It is a long townland, narrowing out at the lower north end and broadens out up the slopes of Bulbin mt. It is situated on the east bank of the Ballyhallan road. A minor road also skirts the river. Half of the land is above 500'. A third of the land is arable and the rest is rough mountain grazing. It is divided into three villages or parts - Boharna, Adderville Lower and Adderville Upper.
