Administrative Details:

This parish takes its name from Aodh, a disciple of St. Declan, who established a cell here in the latter of his lifetime, and whom St. Declan called to minister to him when he found death approaching. The English rededicated the church under the invocation of the Holy Cross (Sept. 14th). All traces of the original church have disappeared, and of the 14th century church which succeeded, only a portion of the tower and south wall survive.
