This parish is situated on the road from Waterford, which here divides into two branches leading respectively to Passage and Tramore; it comprises 1369 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act. Near the point were the road divides is a stone which is supposed to have been part of an ancient cromlech, from which circumstance the the adjacent house, belonging to Mr. Reynett, derived its appellation Mount Druid.

A constabulary police station has been established, and petty sessions for the division are held every fortnight, at Callaghan, in this parish. It is a vicarage, in the diocese of Waterford, and is part of the union of Ballinakill; the rectory is appropriate to the Dean and Chapter of the cathedral church of Waterford.

In the R.C. divisions it forms part of the union or district of Trinity Within and St. John, Waterford, and contains a chapel. A school is supported by an annual donation of £21 from ---- Fitzgerald, Esq.
