Boyeeghter Bay, located in the northwest corner of Melmore Head on the Rosguill peninsula got its name from the Irish translation, Bá Íochtair meaning Lower Bay. But the beach, known locally as Murder Hole beach, may have got its name from legend. When Fionn Mac Cumhaill killed Goll Mac Morna in revenge for killing his father, it was said to have taken place at a rock, Carraic Ghoill, lying off the townland of Dooey. This gave the name to the entire headland, Headland of Goll or Rossgoill.
