Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us “TULLAROAN, a parish, in the barony of CRANAGH, county of KILKENNY, and province of LEINSTER, 7 miles (N. W.) from Kilkenny; containing 3650 inhabitants, of which number 182 are in the village.”

Also “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions it is part of the union or district of Freshford: the chapel is on the townland of Brith.”

This photograph was taken Nov 2006.  I couldn’t get into the graveyard to take any other photographs because it was all locked up.
