Administrative Details:

The parish derives its name, which is non-ecclesiastical, from the townland on which the parish church stood. Though the parish is extensive, the list of sub-denominations collected is by no means large. The parish name – Magh Dheilge – “Thorn Plain� is not shared with a townland. The geographical term “Dhá Bhaile Dhéag Churraigh na Slaodaighe� probably refers to the estate or manor of Sleady (McGrath).
