About Moyacomb Parish
What is now the parish of Clonegal comprises the ancient parishs of Barragh and Moyacomb.
The church of Barragh was destroyed by Cromwell?s soldiers in 1650. A Patron day took place here until 1798. The holy well known as Cranevane was restored for Jubilee 2000. The word Moyacomb is from the Irish Magh-da-Chon meaning the plain of the two hounds. It is the ancestral patrimony of the O? Neill?s of Leinster.
