    ODDER, a parish, in the barony of SKREEN, county of MEATH, and province of LEINSTER, 4 1/2 miles (N. N.W. ) from Dunshaughlin ; comprising 1204 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act.

    Towards the close of the twelfth century, a nunnery was founded here for Regular Canonesses of the order of St. Augustine by the family of Barnwall, of which some remains still exist: several cells of nuns in Meath were annexed to this house.

    It is in the diocese of Meath ; the rectory is entirely impropriate in the Misses Blundell : the tithes amount to £40.
