Union of Noughaval and Carrune

VIII. State of Religious Establishment, Tithes, &c.

There is no Protestant place of worship, it being unnecessary, as there is not one Protestant inhabitant in these parishes; there is a Roman Catholic chapel in the parish of Noughaval. In Carrune there is also a Roman Catholic chapel.

The tythe of the tillage and meadow land is viewed and valued, and let to the parishioners yearly. The tythe of sheep, which contributes a considerable proportion to that of those parishes, is rated at so much per hundred, the average number being taken from frequent views in the course of the year, and an agreement then made with the parishioner for them: they are set by the year. These parishes are in the gift of the Bishop of Killaloe and Kilfenora, and they are the corpse of the chantership of Kilfenora.
