Administrative Details:

The Parish name is non-ecclesiastical, borrowed from the townland on which the ancient church stood. From the parish, in turn, is named the well-known Colligan River, which forms its eastern boundary. The parish is small, but, being remote and mountainous, it furnishes a fair proportion of interesting names.
