"Gaulskill", a parish, in the barony of Ida, county of Kilkenny, and province of Leinster, 4 miles (N. by W.) from Waterford, on the road to Thomastown; containing 322 inhabitants. It is also called Kiltokegan and Kilskegan, and comprises 1325 acres, including a lake of 100 acres. The ancient castle appears, from a monument in the church, to have formerly belonged to the De Burgo family. It is rectory and vicarage, in the diocese of Ossory, forming part of the union of Dunkitt; near the church is a small glebe. The church was built in 1792. In the R. C. divisions it is part of the union or district of Kilmacow.
