INCHINABACKY, or ROXBOROUGH, a parish, in the barony of BARRYMORE, county of CORK, and province of MUNSTER, 3 miles (N. W.) from Castlemartyr, on the road from Midleton to Youghal; containing 515 inhabitants. This parish comprises 1460 acres; the soil of the southern part is very fertile, forming part of the limestone district; towards the north the substratum is a yellow clay, but from the abundance of limestone has been rendered moderately productive.

The principal seats are Roxborough, the residence of - McSweeny, Esq.; Stumphill, of W. McO'Boy, Esq.; and Castleview, of P. Warner, Esq. It is a rectory and vicarage, in the diocese of Cloyne, forming part of the union of Templenecarrigy; the tithes amount to £152. 6. 8. The church is in ruins, and it is in contemplation immediately to rebuild it; divine service is performed during the interval in a licensed private house at Roxborough. In the R. C. divisions it is part of the union or district of Midleton.
