The historical Parish of Kiltullagh is situated at the Western
edge of County Roscommon adjoining the counties of Mayo and
Galway. The Parish has three churches in the villages of Ballinlough,
Cloonfad and Granlahan.
The name Kiltullagh comes from the Irish words
"Cill", meaning church and "Tulach", meaning a small hill.
Historical records tell us that a local chief,Enda O'Flynn,
was converted to Christianity by St. Patrick and gave land to
the saint for the building of a church on Cill Tulach or Kiltullagh
- which became the name of the parish.
is a mainly rural parish - agriculture being a major area of
employment. The area is uncrowded with
gentle hills, green pastures, streams. lakes and bogs. Many
emigrants left the parish in the last two centuries - maybe
their descendants will be looking at this web site.
Visitors will always be welcome - come for the fishing , the
peaceful countryside, the smoke-free pubs and restaurants and
the friendly people.
