Kilnacreeva (Irish: Cill na Craoibhe, meaning "church of the branching tree") is a townland in County Cavan, Ireland. It is an area of beautiful old Irish churches, ancient castles, traditional Irish pubs and extensive pasture fields interspersed with thick green bushes.

History[edit]

Here the Druids built forts circa 1000 BC, to protect themselves from roving bandits and wild animals. In the 16th and 17th centuries the land was owned by British landlords and Irish peasants were the sharecroppers who had to give most of their farming products to the landlords. At the present times the land of Kilnacreeva is owned and cultivated by prosperous Irish farmers.
