Administrative Details:

The name in Irish is Teampall Geal, which is equivalent in meaning to the official English name. The whiteness was probably physical - the result of whitewashing, or of decoration with glistening quartz; it may of course have been merely figurative - in allusion to the fame of the church. Greater portion of the parish, which is very extensive, is a rich limestone plain.
