MULLOGH, or MOYLAGH, a parish, in the barony of IFFA and OFFA-WEST, county of TIPPERARY, and province of MUNSTER, 6 miles (S.W.) from Clonmel; containing 746 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the river Suir, was the site of a monastery founded for nuns of the order of St. Augustine, and dedicated to St.

Bridget, which, on the general suppression of religious houses, was granted to Sir Henry Radcliffe. Kenilworth, the occasional residence of R. B. H. Low, Esq., is the only seat in the parish. An annual fair is held by consent at the village of Newcastle. The parish, for all ecclesiastical purposes, forms part of the vicarage of Newcastle, in the diocese of Lismore; the whole of the tithes are impropriate in H. P. Gard, Esq., under a patent of Jas. I. There are some slight remains of the old church.
