Lewis's Topographical Dictionary - Waterford County

56. Lisgenan, or Grange
Lisgenan, or Grange, a parish in the union of Dungarvan, barony of Decies-within-Drum, county of Waterford, and province of Munster, 5 miles (E.) from Youghal; on the river Licky, and near the coast; containing 2527 inhabitants. It comprises 5710 statute acres: sea-weed, which is obtained in great abundance at the Cove, is used for manure.

In the cliffs are some remarkable caves, and off the shore is Goat's Island; at Whiting Bay is Grange Lodge, a marine villa, the occasional residence of Sir Richard Musgrave, Bart.

The parish is a vicarage, in the diocese of Lismore, forming part of the union of Kinsalebeg; the rectory is impropriate in the Duke of Devonshire. and of the tithe rent-charge amounting to £450, two-thirds are payable to the impropriator, and the remainder to the vicar.

In Roman Catholic divisions Lisgenan forms part of the district of Ardmore, and has a small chapel.
