Origins Of Kilmaley

The parish of Kilmaley (Cill Mháille – The Church of Máille) gets its name from St. Máille, a sixth century monk. Máille, who is said to have been a pupil of St Colmcille’s School, built a small monastic settlement on the banks of the river near where Kilmaley Post Office is today. The community of monks built a mill on the river and it soon became the centre of the agricultural and educational life of the surrounding countryside.
Today Kilmaley is an amalgamation of three church districts stretching some nine miles East-West and seven miles North-South making it one of the largest parishes in the Diocese of Killaloe
