Cullohill Old Church, Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.)

Old Church,
Laois (Queen’s Co.)

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us “CULLOHILL, a village, in the parish of AGHAMACART, barony of UPPER OSSORY, QUEEN’S county, and province of LEINSTER, 3 miles (W.) from Durrow, on the road to Kilkenny; the population is returned with the parish. Fairs are held on May 27th and Oct. 2nd, for farming stock in general, but particularly sheep. A constabulary police force is stationed here; and the parochial chapel of the district of Durrow is situated in the village.”

I never knew until I pasted those words in here that this church must have been the parochial chapel of the district of Durrow!
