It is a rectory, in the diocese of Ossory, forming part of the union of Kells. In the R. C. divisions it is part of the union or district of Ballyhale [earlier part of Aghaviller, and next to Dunnamaggin]; the chapel, a neat modern building, is in the village of Stoneyford. About 120 children are educated in three schools, one of which, for infants, is supported by Mrs. Flood.
