Magorban C of I Parish

Description: Within the graveyard (TS061-070001-) of the existing C of I church. According to White (1892, 31-2) the medieval parish of Magorban was appropriated to the Archbishop of Cashel. It is possible that the C of I church was built on or near the site of a medieval church, though no traces of a medieval church are visible in the graveyard, nor is there any evidence of the re-use of medieval architectural fragments in the fabric of the early 19th-century Board of First Fruits church which is still in use.
