    KILLIMORE-DALY, a parish, partly in the barony of ATHENRY, partly in that of TYAQUIN, but chiefly in that of KILCONNELL, county of GALWAY, and province of CONNAUGHT, 4.50 miles from Athenry, on the road from that place to Kilconnell ; containing 1945 inhabitants, and 6181 statute acres.

    The principal seats are Killimor Castle, formerly the seat of the Daly family, but now the residence of Hyacinth Burke, Esq. ; Cloncah, of P. Daly, Esq. ; and Anne Ville, of the Rev. J. Seymore.
