[Arklow]
"It is a rectory as to this parish but not as to the entire union. The present union which is called the Union of Arklow is only part[.]y a former union, which was divided by the Archbishop of Dublin in the year 1834. The R.C. chapel (which is in Arklow Town) was built in 1810 and is in good repair. It is capable of holding about 4400 persons, but the usual congregation amounts to 6000. The Methodist Meeting House is a small building, capable of holding about 200 persons. It was built in 1822 and is in very good repair. The usual congregation is about 70 persons...The antiquities are Saint Divers Well; ruin of church & a fort in the S.E., and a remarkable rath or fort of a square form in the wood, west of Ballyrane House. See description of the town of Arklow for other remains." [Desc. Rem.];
