Forth, county of Carlow, and province of Leinster, 2 ¾ miles (S.) from
Tullow, on the river Slaney, and on the road from Tullow to
Newtownbarry; containing 368 inhabitants. It comprises 1614 statute
acres, as applotted under the tithe act: the land is partly arable and
partly pasture; a great portion of the latter is marshy, but might be
improved by draining; the state of agriculture is very good. There are
quarries of limestone and of a fine species of granite for building.
Ballykealy is the residence of J. J. Lecky, Esq.
The living is an
impropriate curacy, endowed with two-thirds of the entire tithes, to
which the vicarage of Ballon was recently united, and in the diocese of
Leighlin and patronage of the Bishop; the remainder of the tithes are
impropriate in Lord Downes. It was episcopally united, in 1710, to the
rectory of Gilbertstown and the vicarages of Ardristin and Ballon, which
union was dissolved in 1830, and divided into three distinct benefices.
The tithes amount to £135, of which £45 is payable to the impropriator
and £90 to the incumbent; and the entire tithes of the benefice amount

a small stream, is a plain old building in indifferent repair, and is
about to be newly roofed, for which the Ecclesiastical Commissioners
have lately granted £591.
There is neither glebe-house nor glebe. In the
R. C. divisions the parish forms part of the union of Ballon and Ratoe,
or district of Gilbertstown. There is a school, in which 57 boys are
