Knocknahunshin

Coordinates: 54°21′00″N 7°47′46″W / 54.350°N 7.796°W / 54.350; -7.796 Knocknahunshin (), is a townland in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. It is in the civil parish of Boho, in between the townlands of Glenkeel and Reyfad.[1] Within this area are the sub-townlands of Arduagh, Carricknamulloge (from Irish: Carraig na Mullóige[2]), Carricknine, Horse Rock, Legloughra, Owneyglas, Silkins and Sterrickinard.[1]

This area is mentioned as far back as 1672 as "K:nahinshina" in the Barony of Magheraboy.[3] Later on, in 1834, it was referred to by its Irish name of Cnoc na h-Uinnsean meaning "ridge of the ash trees".[3]
