McKay, P A Dictionary of Ulster Place-names (Belfast, 1999) notes:
Parish of Kilmore, Barony of Oneilland West
From the Irish Ath Oirir 'Ford of the Boundary'
The ford in question appears to have been the Ballybay River which borders the townland on the east. Aghory marks the southern boundary of the parish of Kilmore and also the boundaries between the baronies of Oneilland West and Orior Lower.
(Aghoorier, 1610)
