"Treadingstown", or Ballyreddin, a parish, in the barony of Gowran, county of Kilkenny, and province of Leinster, 5 miles (W.S.W.) from Gowran, on the river Nore: the population is returned with the parish of Killarney. This small parish comprises only 704 statute acres: it is a rectory, in the diocese of Ossory, entirely appropriate to the economy estate of the cathedral of St. Canice, Kilkenny. In the Roman Catholic divisions it forms part of the union or district of Danesfort.
