LACKEEN, a parish, in the barony of ORRERY and KILMORE, county of CORK, and province of MUNSTER, 1¼ mile (w.) from Churchtown, on the road to Liscarrol; containing 89 inhabitants. It comprises only the townlands of Lackeen and Granard, containing 277 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act, and valued at £246. 9.2., as rated for the county cess. The land is of excellent quality and chiefly in tillage; limestone is quarried for burning, lime being generally used for manure, and the state of agriculture has been much improved. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Cloyne, forming the corps of the prebend of Lackeen in the cathedral of Cloyne, and in the patronage of the Bishop; the tithes amount to £31. The occasional duties are discharged by the curate of Churchtown. In the R. C.

divisions it is part of the union of Liscarrol. The ruins of the old church still remain in the burial-ground.
