History of the parishes

E-mail Print PDF

Mullinahone Parish as we know it came into being in 1826. Before the parishes of Mullinahone and Drangan were the one unit. Way back the parish of Mullinahone consisted of three medieval parishes Modeshill, Inch St, Ciaran and Kilvemnon and part of the parish Lismolin. An old document to hand lists the town land which lists modes hill .

This information was supplied by William Flanagan P.P., Mullinahone, Rev. James Manseragh and Pat Phelan. The towns land were Affoley (Ath Bhuaile) or a secondary open milking place or field, Ballyvoneen (Baile Mhoinn) the town (land) of the little bog, Clashbeg (Clais Bheag) the little trench pit or furrow.

Other townslands were Graigue(Graig) a village james town (Baile Sheamais) Kyladahirr (Coil a Duithir) the wood of the gloom or blackness, kyleaglone (Couill a Ghleanna) wood of the valley or glen. There was also Modeshal Ayre and Modeshal Sankey. Both Ayre and Sankey were landlords. Up to around 1880, Modeshill would have had the status of a village around the cross.

The village of Drangan received a welcome boost this week with the announcement that a new industry is to locate in the area with the potential creation of up to ten jobs.

The news has been welcomed by Cllr. Eddie O’Meara who stated that he was particularly pleased that the industrial units in the village, which were provided in the mid-1990’s, will finally house a new industry.

Energy Creation, a solar and wind energy company, from Scarborough, will now establish themselves in the centre, with potential employment for between eight and ten people.

Cllr. O’Meara stated that the three industrial units had been idle for a very long period. They had, he said, been provided by South Tipperary County Council in the mid-1990’s but, with the exception of a two year period when they had been leased by Mullinahone Co-op as storage, they had remained vacant throughout the years.

He stated that the units had been provided with the aim of creating new employment in the area and he expressed his delight that this had finally come to pass.
