SHRULE – J.F. Quinn’s History

Return to the index

Knox refers to an old church at Kilnamanagh, which is difficult to date. He claimed he found it in an ancient tract, and stated to be in Muintir Murcada. He claimed that it was the parish church of Struithir in Muntercuda (Muintir Cada), and that mentioned in the Taxation. The parish, or at least part of it, merged in that of Donaghpatrick, and the rectory of the whole belonged to the monastery at the time of the suppression. The Four Masters record the death of the abbot of Kilnamanagh in 1438.

A Franciscan House had, however, no abbot, and it is supposed the term was used laxly. There are indications to show that the building had been extended, the reconstruction being done in a rough way. Much of the ruin remains.
