From Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, 1837:
Ballinahown is home to the work of a large selection of Midlands Arts and Crafts workers, not least the famous Celtic Roots studio where one may see a demonstration of the art of Oak Sculpture and learn of the cultural significance of the materials.
Clonydonnin Bog is located to the east of the village.
