  6. 6. LARAGH Laragh takes its name from the Ess-Na-Laragh waterfall, which means ‘the fall of the mare’ and is situated in the nearby valley of Glenariff.   With cascading waterfalls and mature woodlands as a background, it must be one of the most beautiful settings in the Glens of Antrim.  
  7. 7. LAYDE Layde takes its name from Knocklayde, which means ‘The Broad Hill.’ On the round top mountain are the remains of a large burial monument, possibly a passage grave.   It is known as the Cairn of the Three. Legend records that three large bronze swords were found here, embedded upright in the ground like King Arthur’s famous sword, Excalibur.
  8. 8. LISBREEN Lisbreen is a town-land between Glenravel and Broughshane.   Folklore tells us that this is where Milchu’s daughter is buried. Milchu brought St Patrick to Ireland as a slave on Slemish mountain.   The bishop’s residence in Belfast is called ‘Lisbreen.’  
  9. 9. LISMOYLE Lismoyle takes its name from lios- maol which means bald fort. The name is also associated with the Sea of Moyle, which is the narrowest expanse of water between County Antrim and Scotland.   The Children of Lir were banished to the icy waters of the Sea of Moyle for three hundred years.  
  10. 10. LURIG Luirg takes its name from a mountain range called Lurig or Lurg, which means ‘a long shine.’   The plateau of the mountain range overlooks the U- shaped Glenariffe valley and is a favourite with ramblers.    
  11. 11. LYNDON   Lyndon is named after an ancient forest near Cushendall. The name Lyndon means ‘Lime tree hill.’
