Administrative Details:

This Parish lies along the left bank of the Blackwater-southward from the junction with the latter river of the gently-flowing Bride. Of limited area, Kilcockan embraces a considerable proportion of mountain and is noted for its fine scenery. The historic associations of the parish are insignificant, and its place names of only moderate interest, apart from the ancient church which gives the parish its name.
