LEGEND OF AGAHAY:

Agahay (1919 ) – When the Spaniards came and settled in Dunggo-an (old name of Maribojoc), Agahay was already a prosperous village and was made a sitio of ancient Busao. The original name of Agahay is “ Dagahay “ which means gently – flowing water. The different springs of Agahay developed into streams of water that flows down the Abatan River. During the early days of the Spanish conquest in Bohol, when one was asked where he would pass by in going to Maribojoc, the ready answer would be “ sa Dagahay “’ the stream of water that gathers into the Abatan River where the Abatan Bridge is now located.
