Paróiste Chill Tulach
Cill Tulach—Paróiste Chill Tulach. Cill Naomh Mochuda (a rugadh sa cheanntar) ann. Tá an tulach ann. Ní heol dom an fáth gur ‘Tulach’ atá san ainm agus nach ‘Tulaighe’ nó ‘Tulcha’. ... Toisc litrithe an Bhéarla is “Keeltalla” a deir Béarlóirí na háite anois leis. (An Seabhac) [Ón sean-nóta: T. Ó Corcoráin O.S. – Cill tulcha – Tá an chill ar thalamh ard. Bhí sean-mhainistir san áit.]
