[Kilcommon]
"The church is a neat building half a mile from the town of Tinahely which is situated at the S.E. corner of the parish. There are two R.C. chapels in the parish, one in Bridgeland townland and the other in the townland of Whitefield within a grave yard...At Coolross are the ruins of a mansion which was commenced to be built by the Earl of Strafford before his attainder, they are vulgarly called 'Black Tom's Cellars'. The neat town of Tinahely is at the S.E. corner of the parish. During the disturbances of 1798 the town was entirely destroyed but was soon afterwards rebuilt in an improved style." [Desc. Rem.];
