Lewis's Topographical Dictionary - Waterford County

43. Kilmacomb
Kilmacomb, a parish, in the barony of Gaultier, union and county of Waterford, and province of Munster, 5 miles (S.S.E.) from Waterford; containing, with the ecclesiastical parish of Rossduff, 817 inhabitants. It comprises 2401 statute acres. Woodstown, the seat of Lord Carew, is a short distance from Waterford harbour; and from it a low strand extends about two miles to a projecting headland named Credan, in which are three caves of considerable dimensions, branching into various chambers consisting of natural arches of great symmetry and beauty: they appear to have been formed by the decent of a stream on the pudding-stone rock. Near Woodstown is a sheet of fresh water, called Bel Lake, which covers about 50 statute acres.

In the south-western part of the parish there is peat; also the remains of an ancient wood, consisting of fir, oak, and birch. It is a vicarage, in the diocese of Waterford, forming part of the union of Ballinakill; the rectory forms part of the corps of the chancellorship in Waterford cathedral, and the tithe rent-charge is £92.12. of which £55.11. are payable to the chancellor, and the remainder to the vicar. On the hill Kilmacomb is a circle of stones, about 30 yards in diameter, enclosing five large stones.
