KILLOSCULLY, a par. in the bars. of Owney and Arra, co. Tipperary, prov. of Munster, Ireland, 8 miles S.S.W. of Nenagh, its post town. The par. is nearly 6 miles long by 4 mile broad, and contains the vil. of Shellee. The surface is hilly, particularly so in the east, where the Keeper mountains rise 2,278 feet above sea-level. The Dublin and Limerick road traverses the interior. The living is a rect. and vic. in the dioc. of Cashel, val.  £248, in the patron. of the bishop. The church was erected in 1828, by means of a loan from the late Board of First Fruits. The Roman Catholic chapel is united to that at Ballinahinch in Kilnerath. There are three day schools. Kinalta is the chief seat. Stone, slate, and marl occur, and there are some abandoned gold mines, and a cromlech."
