This pages differs from my 1836 R.C. parish listing in a number of ways. I have not tried to list the counties that the closest post town is found in and I have not tried to compare this listing either with the 1836 listing or the 1931 listing.

I have however, included extra information on the Diocese as found in the 1846 Roman Catholic Directory on convents and nunneries or academies if mentioned – or, as it is put in the directory – ‘The State of Religion’

Diocese of Ossory:

The Diocese of Ossory includes county Kilkenny and portions of Laois (Queen’s) and Offaly (King’s).

In 1836 this Diocese had 34 parishes and in 1931 there were 41 parishes.
