de Creag (1) Cregg, (2) Craig: tá (2) an-líonmhar i gCúige Uladh & tuaisceart Laighean - de bhunadh Albanach. Tá (1) le fáil i Ros Comáin agus scata beag i Luimneach, an Clár & Corcaigh thuaidh, chomh maith le timpeall Áth Cliath. Préamh: ó log-ainmneacha "craig" a chiallaíonn carraig. Tá an sloinne Carrig ann a d'fhéadfadh a bheith ar aon-chéill ach glactar gur galldú ar Mac Concharraige é, de ghnáth.
