- In the winter of 1601 when O Sullivan Beare and his army were on their way from Kerry to Breffni they passed through Creggs district.
On the top of Mount Mary they were attacked by the forces of Mac David Burke but having defeated the attaching troops they continued their journey down the old road through Park and Cuilnacappy.
They were hospitably received in the village of Creggs. Having delayed there for a short time they restarted on their journey. They went by Ballina, Lisduff and Bóithrín na Gort on to Glinsk and Treen.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
