Cooldrumman, the townland near the village, was the subject of probably the first copyright judgement ever made. Colmcille had copied a book of psalms written by Finian of Movile and refused to return the copy to its author. During the controversy the King of Tara ruled that "to every cow its calf, to every book its copy". Between here and Lissadell is a wildfowl reserve, noted for the barnacle geese which winter here.
