From the Schools Collection of folklore compiled by school children in the 1930's in Ireland we read about Rearour and most likely William and Catherine Buckley:
Michael Tuohig of Kilbonane school wrote: "My home district is Rearour. It is in the parish of Kilmurry, and in the barony of Muskerry. There are eleven families in it. The amount of people that are in it now are fifty two. There are four people over seventy. Two men and two women. The two men and one woman can speak Irish. The names are - Denis Kelleher, William Buckley, Mrs. Neville, Mrs Buckley. There living in Rearour, Aherla, Co. Cork. All the houses are slated. They are built with mortar and big stones. Others are with cement blocks. Rearour is between two rivers the eastern and western sides. The meaning of the word "Rearour" is Broad expanse. It is sloping district."  Michael Tuohig stated that he got the information from Mr. William Buckley, Rearour, Aherla, Co. Cork.
