"The road from Pettigoe to Donegal lies for nine miles through a wild, flat, dreary tract of uncultivated moorland, along which an excellent road has been lately carried; it is wholly the estate of Mr. Leslie, who has already, with a view to its reclamation, built several good farm houses. This road enters the county of Donegal on leaving Pettigoe, and joins the preceding road, No. 157, at the chapels, one of which is appropriated village of Laghy, which is about four to the penitents, a house for the miles from the town of Donegal."
