The townland of Mín na gCopóg (Meenagoppoge) is away to the left when you pass by Errigal Mountain, on the road to Letterkenny.

The place takes it's name from 'Mín', meaning a mountain grassland and 'Copóg', meaning dock weed, although the dock would be regarded as a herb rather than a weed in older times
