East Corcabaskin

Kilfiddane Parish

There is no patron saint of this parish. The name is derived from the streamlet near which the old church stands, and which word in the Irish is Feadán. A quarter of a mile to the south of the church is a well dedicated to St. Senán. In the townland of Caher-da-con (Cahercon) stood a castle which in 1580 belonged to Teige MacMahon of Clonderalaw. Not a vestige of it now remains.
