Feakle

Feakle is a village in County Clare, Ireland, in a civil parish and Roman Catholic parish of the same name.Location"Paroiste na fiacaile" means parish of the tooth. A legend says that the tooth of Mochonna, the patron saint, fell out in this place, where he built his church. Other theories are that the place is named after a church that was roofed with "fiathgail", a rough local grass, or that the name comes from "Fia-Choill", the wood of the deer.The civil parish is in the Tulla Upper barony, northwest of Scariff on the road to Gort. In 1837 it contained 8,844 inhabitants and covered about. An 1845 description said "the surface consists of the loftiest, wildest, and most northerly of the western uplands of the county; and includes the southern declivities of the Slieve-Baghta mountains, and those offshoot ranges and masses which embosom Lough Graney, and stretch toward Lough O’Grady. The highest ground is on the west, and has an altitude of 1,312 feet."The parish of Feakle is in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe.
