Dunseverick is a hamlet near the Giant's Causeway on the rugged north coast of County Antrim, most famous for the nearby romantic ruins of Dunseverick Castle. The name is also the alias for the townland of Feigh.[1]

It has been claimed that one of the five great highways, or slighte of ancient Ireland, Slige Midluachra, had its terminal point at Dunseverick, running from here to Emain Macha and further to royal Tara and the fording point on the Liffey at what is now Dublin. How fanciful this idea is has just to be settled in calm analysis.

The hamlet of Dunseverick itself may be a by-name for the townland of Feigh but it stands itself in the adjacent townland of Currysheskin.[1]
