Kiltullagh   -   Athenry
 
 
Kiltullagh / Killimordaly is located 22 miles east of Galway city, approximately 6 miles south-east of Athenry and the same distance north-west of Loughrea.
 
It is surrounded by the parishes of Athenry, Clostoken-Kilconieran, Bullaun - New Inn, Gurteen and Monivea. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the parish of Kiltullagh/Killimordaly was referred to as Kiltullagh Moanmaigh.

The community of Kiltullagh/Killimordaly contains many sites and buildings of historical interest which reflect the rich historical tapestry of Ireland. In ancient times, the parish formed part of ancient territory of Hymany and was the stronghold of the O'Kelly's.

Some features of historical interest to be found in the area include the remains of Kiltullagh House, family home of the renowned D'Arcy family, Kiltullagh Forge, Stations of the Cross in Kiltullagh Church, painted by world famous stain glass window artist Eva Hoan, and a 17th Century marriage stone in the churchyard adjacent to Killimordaly Castle.

The parish is bisected by the Raford River, which is rich in trout. It is a tributary of the Dunkellin River and floods in winter, like much of the Dunkellin basin. There are major bogland areas at Attymon and Cloonkeen, now commercially run by Attymon Peat Co-op.
