This parish is situated on the road from Virginia to Mount-Nugent, and comprises, according to the Ordnance survey 10,315 acres, of which 9722 are applotted under the tithe act. Contiguous to the town is a small lake, near which a shaft was sunk some few years since, and indications of coal were discovered. Since the census of 1831, nine townlands have been separated from this parish, to form ,with portions of other parishes, the district parish of Ballyjamesduff."
