Sonraí Riaracháin:

The parish name is not of ecclesiastical origin. The ancient parish church, erected almost contemporaneously with the castle, was to a certain extent an appendage to the latter, under the shadow of which it stood. It dates therefore from the first period of Anglo-Norman occupation, when it was founded to replace the small Celtic churches of Killowen, Kilcannon and Killsteague. This maritime parish belongs to the Lismore Diocese.
