St. Paul’s Church of Ireland,
Mountmellick,
Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.),
Ireland.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us that Mountmellick is part of two civil parishes “COOLBANAGHER, or COOLBENGER, a parish, in the barony of PORTNEHINCH, QUEEN’S county, and province of LEINSTER; containing, with the parish of Ardea, or Ardrea, the post-town of Emo, and part of that of Mountmellick, 7456 inhabitants. It comprises 8623 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act. “

Also that “The living is a rectory, in the diocese of Kildare, episcopally united, in 1804, to the rectory of Ardea or Ardrea, together forming the union of Coolbanagher, in the patronage of the Crown:”
