Administrative Details:

This is a parish of small size, lying on both sides of the Finisk River a little above the junction of the latter with the Blackwater. The ancient church stands close to the river, on its south bank. The land is mostly arable - some of it very fertile - a class of country not favourable to the preservation or multiplication of ancient names. As a consequence the local nomenclature possesses little special interest beyond that derived from the battle of Affane which was fought partly within the parish.
