Pronunciation Audio File
The parish derives its name, which is non-ecclesiastical, from the townland on which the parish church stood. Though the parish is extensive, the list of sub-denominations collected is by no means large. The parish name â€“ Magh Dheilge â€“ â€œThorn Plainâ€? is not shared with a townland. The geographical term â€œDhÃ¡ Bhaile DhÃ©ag Churraigh na Slaodaigheâ€? probably refers to the estate or manor of Sleady (McGrath).
