There has been a settlement here since before 200BC evident through the ancient pathways and ringforts at Corstown and Drumsilagh. The battle of Ballyhoe took place nearby of which folklore says that a treasure was thrown into the lake during the battle and when a true Irish Gael on a white horse comes he will swoop into the lake and take it.
