The name of this Parish is pronounced in Irish Cill Eithne, the Church of St. Eithne.
... There are two saints of this name mentioned in the Calendar, one at 6th June, another at 12th July; but it cannot be determined from which of them the ancient church that gave name to this Parish, was denominated, since her name and Festival Day are not remembered in the Parish. No ruins of a church remain in the Parish; there is a large grave yard situated in sand banks in it.
