Administrative Details:

Though the site of an early church on its single townland, as well as its name, indicate the ancient ecclesiastical note of the place, the present parish division seems to be comparatively modern. It appears as part of Crooke in the Down Survey, and is not mentioned in the early Visitation Books. The ancient church site is close to the entrance gate to Kilcop House - on the opposite side of the road.
