MUCKALEE - [Knocktopher]

"Muckalee", or Macully, a parish, partly in the barony of Knocktopher, and partly in the barony of Iverk, 7 miles (S. by W.) from Knocktopeher; containing 423 inhabitants. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Ossory, and forms part of the union of Kilculliheen. In the R. C. divisions it forms part of the union or district of Templeorum (formerly called Fiddown). Portions of the parish have apparently been included at one time or another in the neghboring R.C. parishes of Aghaviller, Mooncoin, and Mullinavat (formerly northern Kilmacow). The 1837 Topographical Dictionary of Ireland places the civil parish of Macully in the R.C. union of Slieruagh (Slieverue).

Note: There is another Muckalee parish in the barony of Fassadinin, and the R.C. parish of Muckalee.
