REDHILLS, a village, in that part of the parish of ANNAGH which is in the barony of TULLAGHGARVEY, county of CAVAN, and province of ULSTER, 2 miles (N. E.) from Belturbet, on the road to Ballyhaine: the population is returned with the parish. It takes its name from the peculiarly red colour of the soil, which arises from its being strongly impregnated with iron: the roads near it are all of a deep red colour. Here is a R. C. chapel belonging to the district of Annagh East, or Killoughter.
