Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Killofin. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you.
Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may
have already used so others may further your search.
Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to rollout across
the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be

Even in the extreme western parts of Co. Clare the Augustinians held a portion of the rectorial tithe in the parishes of Kilrush, Killimer, Kilfearagh, Killard, Moyarta and Killballyowen; the remaining portions in these six parishes being impropriate to the Collegiate Church of Iniscathaigh In fact all the Augustinian impropriations in the deanery of Corcabaiscinn can be more conveniently seen, though from a reversed point of view, in the Loyal Answers concerning the state of Killaloe diocese given by the Protestant bishop, John Rider, to the ecclesiastical commissioners in 1622. The bishop acknowledges that all sixteen rectories in the diocese were impropriate to ﾑcertain abbiesﾒ [prior to the Dissolution]. He lists them as follows: Clondegad, Kilchreest, Kildysert, Kilfiddane, Killofin, Kilfarboy, Kilmurry-Mc Mahon, Killimer, Kilmihil, Kilmacduane, Kilmurry-Ibrickane, Killard, Kilrush, Kilfearagh, Moyarta and Killballyowen.
