About: Although the subtitle of this article claims this is a short history, it is nevertheless a substantial piece running to sixteen pages. The area studied runs from the headwaters of the King’s River at Lake Nahanagan to the point where it enters the Poulaphouca Reservoir at Lockstown Lower. The author focuses on seventeen townlands that are contiguous to the river and explains placename origins, history, topography, and agricultural and industrial activity. The townlands covered include: Ballinagee, Banogue, Coonmore, Garryknock, Granabeg, Granamore, Harristown, Knockalt, Knocknadruse, Johnstown, Lockstown, Lugglas Lower, Oakwood and Walterstown.
