CAVAN.-The Irish cabhan, "a hollow plain", " a field," is the source from which the word CAVAN is derived. The Irish word cabhan has acquired another meaning in some parts of Ulster, viz.:-" a round hill," as Cavanreagh, cabhan riach, "grey round hill". There are 25 Townlands in the Index named CAVAN, and the word CAVAN forms the first portion of numerous other Townland names. There is a corresponding word in Scottish Gaelic which is found in Gaven, "a hollow" (Dumfries-shire).
