It is a vicarage, in the dioeese of Emly, forming part of the union of Ballybrood; the rectory forms the corps of the prebend of Isert-Laurence in the cathedral of Emly, and being held by the bishop gives him a seat in the chapter-house.

In the R. C. divisions it is part of the union or district of Cahirconlish, and has a small chapel, near which is a burial-ground containing a well dedicated to St.

Laurence, which is much resorted to. About 110 children are educated in a national school adjoining the chapel. There are some remains of a fortress nt Seaghard, and the ruins of the castle of Grenane.
