"Killamery", a parish, in the barony of Kells, county of Kilkenny, and province of Leinster, 4 miles (S. by W.) from Callan, on the road from that place to to Carrick-on-Suir; containing 1837 inhabitants. It comprises 6451 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act. At Garryricken, which is the porperty and was the residence of the Marquess of Ormonde, are some very fine plantations. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Ossory, forming the corps of the prebend of Kilamery, in the gift of the Bishop. The church is a plain structure erected in 1815. The glebe-house was erected in 1818; the glebe comprises five acres. In the R. C. divisions it is the head of a union or district, comprising also the parish of Tullohaught, and containing a chapel at Windgap. The parochial school is aided by the rector; and at Garryricken is a public school, the house for which it was built by the late Marquess of Ormonde. In these schools are about 70 children, and about 100 children are taught in a private school. A monastery of 1000 monks is said to have anciently existed here. Ar Rossamery are the ruins of a small church.
