MORTLESTOWN, a parish, in the barony of IFFA and OFFA, county of TIPPERARY, and province of MUNSTER, 1½ mile (N. by E.) from Cahir, on the road from Clonmel to Cashel; containing 574 inhabitants, and comprising 1835 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Lismore, forming part of the union of Outragh; the tithes amount to £150. An improper presentation to this benefice was one of the charges brought against the Earl of Strafford, when impeached by the English parliament.

Here are the ruins of a castle, which appears to have been formerly of considerable extent.

from Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, 1837.
