Carrow signifies a quarter. The old townlands were very often divided into quarters, eventually becoming named geographical entities in their own right. Lecarrow means the half quarter, in the area of this walk there are places called Carrowmore, Carrowbeg and Carrowbaun. Not all quarters were of equal size as Carrowbeg: small quarter, and Carrowmore: large quarter, suggest. The townland is a small geographical division of land used in Ireland; it dates back to the earliest of times.
