Church,
Attanagh,
Co’s Laois (Queen’s Co.) & Kilkenny,
Ireland.

The Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us : ATTANAGH, a parish, partly in the barony of UPPER OSSORY, QUEEN’S county, but chiefly in that of FASSADINING, county of KILKENNY, and province of LEINSTER, 1 ¾ mile (E. S. E.) from Durrow; containing 750 inhabitants. This parish, formerly calledRathanna and Attier, is situated on the river Nore, and comprises 2445 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act.”

In the Roman Catholic divisions, this parish is one of nine which formed the Union of Ballyragget.

It’s actually an interesting little place, one minute you are in Laois and then you cross over the bridge and you are in Kilkenny.  The Church is on the Laois (Queen’s Co.) side of the border.

These photographs were taken Jan, 2006.
