Administrative Details:

Historically this is, after Ardmore, the most important parish of the Barony. Like almost all parishes attached to important pre-invasion foundations, Clashmore is of large extent. Its nomenclature is of perhaps more than average interest; there are a dozen or more, very unusual names, and a few names which are of puzzling character. St. Cronin Mochua, a disciple of St. Cartage, founded the monastery and church of Clashmore, and here he and his household were murdered by pirates in or about 631.
