"Munterconnaght a parish, in the barony of Castlerahan, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, 4 Miles from Oldcastle, on the road from Kells to Ballyjamesduf; containing 2969 inhabitants. This parish is on the confines of the county of Meath, and comprises, according to the Ordnance survey, 7434 statute acres, of which 5828 are applotted under the tithe act, and 965 are in Lough Ramor. It is a rectory and vicarage, in the diocese of Kilmore, forming part of the union of Lurgan: the tithes amount to £148. The church is a very neat building, erected in 1832 by a gift of £900 from the late Board of First Fruits. In the R.C divisions it is part of the union of Castlerahan and Munterconnaught; the chapel is a good stone building. About 140 children are educated in a school aided by subscriptions; and there are three private schools, in which are about 160 children. Here was anciently a hospital, the endowment of which was granted by Jas. I. to Sir Edward Moore."
