DUNISKY, a parish, in the barony of WEST-MUSKERRY, county of Cork, and province of Munster, 4 miles (S. S. E.) from Macroom; containing 479 inhabitants.

This is a very small parish, comprising only one ploughland, situated on the south bank of the river Lee, near Warrens-court. The land is good, and the substratum consists entirely of clay-slate. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Cork, being part of the union of St.

Peter's, Cork, and of the corps of the archdeaconry: the tithes amount to £107. There being no church, the parishioners attend divine service at Canaway. The ruins of the old church are a mile and a half north of Warrens-court, on rising ground, and show it to have, been a small building. In the R. C divisions the parish is part of the union or district of Kilmichael.
