Administrative Details:

The Rectory, like Killea, belonged to the Priory of St. John, Waterford. Rathmoylan Church ruin, standing on a natural, mound-covered plateau, has a modern look, and is in a comparatively good state of preservation. Attached to the church is a small graveyard, which contains neither inscription nor aught else of particular interest. In the few grass-grown mounds beside the church ruin, indicating the former site of a village, an imaginative writer discovered remains of the royal rath of O’Felan, Prince of Desi!
