Killadysert Civil Parish

Irish or Alternate Name: Cill an Dísirt.
Logainm Link: Killadysert Parish on Logainm.ie
Barony: Clonderalaw
Province: Munster


The civil and Roman Catholic parish go by the same name that surrounds the village of Killadysert.
Kildysart, or Killadysert, is derived from CILL AN DISIRT MORTHUILE, the church of the deserted place of the big tides or the church of the hermitage of the swollen waters. MORTHUILE can mean a rush of water, a deluge or a tide. A less popular translation would be the hermitage church of the big tide or high tide because when the church was originally built it was erected above the high-water mark rather than on the hill above it. The parish was referred to, in Irish, as DISERTMURTUILE, and sometimes TUATH-NA-FEARNA, territory of the alder trees. Source: Clare Library
