ANHID, or ATHNETT, a parish, in the barony of COSHMA, county of LIMERICK, and province of MUNSTER, l¼ mile (S.) from Croom; containing 475 inhabitants.

This parish, which is situated on the western bank of the river Maigue, and on the new road from Charleville to Limerick, by way of Groom, comprises 928 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act. The land is very fertile: about one-half of it is under tillage, and the remainder is good meadow and pasture. A new line of road is now in progress from Croom to Charleville, which will be intersected by the direct mail coach road from Cork to Limerick. Athnett is a prebend in the cathedral church of St. Mary, Limerick, which has, from time immemorial, been annexed to the bishoprick, and gives to the bishop a seat in the chapter: the tithes amount to £42. There is neither church nor glebehouse.

In the R. C. divisions it forms part of the union or district of Croom.
