Leenan

Leenan is a large irregular shaped townland, 1300' above sea level with a long coastline and unusual features, including many sea caves, steepcliffs and natural arches. It also has a small strand. A quarter of the land is arable and the remainder is rough mountain or sandhill grazing. It consists of four villages or parts; Clonmartin; Skehog (Sceicheog); Lenan and Lenankeel (Lionan Caol - sandy town).
