J2068 : Hungry House Lane, Magheragall

taken 7 years ago, near to Stoneyford, Northern Ireland

Hungry House Lane, Magheragall
Hungry House Lane, Magheragall
This unusually named minor road links the Sheepwalk Road leading northwest from Derriaghy with the Lisburn to Glenavy Road, between the townlands of Ballynadolly and Ballycarrickmaddy.

With regard to the name, the only information I have been able to find online comes from the 1986 BBC Domesday project. The contributors to the project suggested two theories: 1 - a whole household here died of starvation during the Irish Famine of the 1840s; 2 - there was a place here where food was distributed during the Famine. Any further information would be greatly appreciated.
