Between Dundonald and Newtownards you find the townland of Killarn.
As usual, the PLACENAMESNI website is the place to go for the origin of the townland name. They consider that Killarn probably derives from the Irish Cill Earnáin meaning “Earnán’s church”.
If you are researching the history of your family in Killarn, I recommend Derek Beattie’s website “Newtownards: A Pictorial History”.
