Administrative Details:

Although the parish contains a sufficiently large number of townlands it is in reality but of small extent - its townlands, like those adjoining Dungarvan, being diminutive. In the graveyard which surrounds the ruined church is a stone coffin standing on one end after the manner of a tombstone. The local names are perhaps of less than average interest.
