of Kilnamanagh and partly in the barony of Clanwilliam has a present day
population of approx 1,000 people. The parish is oblong in shape, situated
in the centre of the Diocese of Cashel and Emly, belonging to the western

A “Grange” is described as ‘an outlying farmhouse in which a religious
establishment stored crops and tithes in kind’
