Tuamgraney

Tuamgraney is a village in eastern County Clare in the west of Ireland and a civil parish by the same name. Situated a kilometere from the River Graney which flows into Lough Derg, it is an ancient settlement, noted for St Cronán's church, said to be the oldest church in constant use in Ireland.LocationThe parish is in the barony of Tulla Upper and contains the villages of Scarriff and Tomgraney. It is 7.5by and covers. The parish is rugged, with heights ranging from 1126to above sea level. It contains the Scariff river from its headstreams through Lough O'Grady to its mouth in Scarriff bay, Lough Derg. The village of Tuamgraney lies in such close proximity to the town of Scarriff that today the two are often considered to be one single settlement. There is a holy well dedicated to St. Cronán in the Currakyle townland. The nearby castle of Tuamgraney is still in a good state of preservation.HistoryTuamgraney parish was founded by a saint named Cronán or Chronain, possibly the same Cronán who founded Roscrea. The place is mentioned in the annals from as early as 735 AD. There was a round tower, which was repaired by Brian Boroimhe, and the castles of Tuamgraney and Scarriff. In 1560 both castles belonged to Edmond O'Grady.In 1633 Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork, bought ten quarters of land north of the Graney River, including the castle and ironworks of Scarriff. These lands were combined with the old Moynoe parish to form the Scariff parish. Today the village of Scarriff is in the Roman Catholic parish of Scariff and Moynoe, part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. The southern part of Tuamgraney parish was combined with the medieval parish of Kilnoe early in the 18th century to form the parish of Bodyke. The Roman Catholic parish of Bodyke encompasses Bodyke, Kilnoe and Tuamgraney, also in the Killaloe Diocese.
