Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church,
Durrow,
Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.),
Ireland.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us “DURROW, or CASTLE-DURROW, a market and post-town, and a parish, partly in the barony of UPPER OSSORY, QUEEN’S county, but chiefly in that of GALMOY, county of KILKENNY, and province of LEINSTER, 12 miles (S. by E.) from Maryborough, and 54 (S. W.) from Dublin, on the road from Athy to Cashel; containing 2911 inhabitants, of which number, 1298 are in the town. “

Also, “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions part of the parish is in the union or district of Ballyragget, and the remainder with Aghamacart forms the district of Durrow, in which is a chapel.”
