In the 2001 Census it had a population of 4 people. It is within Urney civil parish and the former barony of Strabane Lower. In local government it is part of Derry City and Strabane District Council. The townland covers an area of 173 acres.
According to Lewis in 1842, close to the village is a bridge of seven arches over the River Finn, connecting Clady with the County Donegal. Before the erection of this bridge, there was an important ford here, which was contested by kings William III and James II in 1688; and at the time of the Siege of Derry it was a strong post under Colonel Skeffington, who was driven from it by the Duke of Berwick, a short time before James II crossed the Finn at this place.
