Castlemagner parish is at the eastern end of the Barony of Duhallow in North Cork. It includes the village of Castlemagner and the north east quarter of Kanturk town. A thousand years of careful farming has enriched the naturally fertile soil, with the result that, in all its 7880 acres, there is no wasteland. The troubled history of the Irish nation has ebbed and flowed over its green fields since time immemorial. It was an old and settled place when the Magnels from Pembrokeshire made their way along the Blackwater valley and sank their roots deep into Castlemagner soil to shape the life of the parish for more than 450 years.
