Dunamuggy (from Irish: DĂșn na mBogach, meaning "fort of the bogs or marshes")is a townland of 172 acres in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is situated in the civil parish of Donegore and the historic barony of Antrim Upper.

Archaeology

The name probably comes from a motte in the east of the townland. The Ordnance Survey Memoir of 1838 records a tumulus 18 ft high, outside of which was a parapet varying in height from 2 to 6 ft. The mound seemed to be constructed of stone and covered with earth. The motte is a Scheduled Historic Monument at grid ref: J2274 9059.
