Templeport

Templeport, a parish, in the barony of Tullaghagh, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, 7½ miles (N. W.) from Killeshandra on the road from Ballyconnel to Swanlinbar, containing 10,758 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the confines of the county of Leitrim, comprises, according to the Ordnance survey, 42,172 statute acres, of which 1532¾ are water, and 25,767 are applotted under the tithe act. It contains not less than eight lakes: in the lake of Templeport is an island called Inch, on which are the picturesque ruins of an abbey founded by St. Maedoc, or Maodhoy, in the 6th century; attached to it is a cemetery still used as a burial-place. At Kilnavat are also the remains of an ancient monastery, of which there are no particulars on record, with an extensive burial-place still in use.
