Binnion was once part of a quarter land known as Doonally pre Ordinance survey. It is a small townland on the hillside of Binnion and Tanderagee Hills. The north end touches the sea. A third of the land along the river is arable and the remainder is rough mountain grazing. Clonmany river enters the sea here. The cliffs are 100' - 200' high. There are sea rocks, arches and a strand. Binion has three villages or parts; Binnion; Bunacrick and Tandragee. St Coulmbs Cross and Killoran burial ground is here.
