Placename : Killure

In Irish : Cill Iúir     Administrative Unit : Parish     Audio File (.wav) Pronunciation Audio File

Administrative Details:

The parish is coterminous with the townland of Killure, from which it derives its name. Its ancient church, of which portion still stands, was impropriate on the Knights Templar. It is pretty safe to infer from its Irish name that the later Church of the Templars merely replaced an earlier Celtic foundation. Area, 627 acres.
