"Killencare, or Killenkere, a parish, partly in the barony of Upper Loughtee, but chiefly in that of Castleraghan, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, 4 miles (W. S. W.) from Bailieborough, on the road to Virginia containing 7600 inhabitants. This parish, which is also called KiIlingskere, comprises, according to the Ordnance survey, 15.962¼ statute acres, of which 131¼ are water, and there is some bog. The lands are principally arable, and in a tolerable state of cultivation; slate is found here, but of very inferior quality, and the quarries formerly worked have in con-sequence been discontinued: an ore supposed to be zinc has been discovered on the townland of Durry-ham but it has not been yet worked."
[From Lewis' Topographical Dictionary (1837)]
