Length, 7 miles; breadth, 4; area, 19,887 acres, 3 roods, 9 perches, of which 231 acres, 1 rood, 6 perches are water. Pop., in 1841, 4,192. Houses 690. The surface is, for the most part,a series of moors, bogs, and poor uplands; and its aspect is almost everywhere bleak and repulsive. Slievecallan, on the western boundary, has an altitude of 1,282 feet; and some heights in the interior have altitudes of very nearly 500 feet. The chief stream is the Brockagh. The roads from Ennistymon and Milltown-Malbay to Ennis traverse the interior. This parish is not recognised in the ecclesiastical divisions of the Established church; yet ranks as a Roman Catholic parish in the dio. of Killaloe, and has chapels at Inagh and Kilmanona.
