Administrative Details:

The place names of the Parish are as interesting and as numerous as the peculiar position and circumstances of the region warrant one in expecting. This parish forms the extreme portion of a prominent headland and is bounded by the sea therefore on three sides and by untilled and unoccupied mountain on the other. Ringagonagh, or Ring as it is popularly called, is one of the most Irish speaking parishes in Ireland. Needless to add, the parish name - Rinn Ó gCuanach (“O’Cooney’s Point�) - is not ecclesiastical in origin.
