The History and Topography of the County of Clare by James Frost

Part I. Topography of Thomond Chapter 8. Ui Cormaic; Ui Donghaile

Ui Cormaic

Kilmaley Parish

The Calendars are silent as to the history of St. Maley. Only a portion of the old church is standing; in its vicinity is a large grave-yard, and not far off are two holy wells, one dedicated to the Blessed Virgin and the other to Sgrevaun of Clondagad. A burial ground for children exists on the townland of Kilcloher, another on Drumanure. The castle of Ballymacooda belonged in 1580 to the Baron of Inchiquin.
