The list of Priests from 1704 to 1836 is compiled from information gained in Begley's History of the Diocese of Limerick Vol. III page 598. The remaining years are compiled from the Catholic Directories. Information contained in a directory of any given year refers to what happened the previous year, e.g. if a priest is recorded in the 1954 directory as being in a particular parish, this would mean that he was actually there in 1953.
