Barony and Civil Parish Map of County Kilkenny
County Kilkenny is located in southern Leinster Province in Ireland.
Including the area around Kilkenny City there are eleven Baronies noted on
the map above. In the 13th and 14th centuries, Kilkenny was divided into
twelve Cantreds roughly based on Gaelic family
territories or "tuaths". These were restructured into the later
baronies of the county, which were used as
administrative units up to the 19th century.
Baronies and Civil Parishes were used as
administrative divisions and are useful to genealogical research in Ireland.
In addition to the cities and towns listed on the map, Kilkenny includes
a large number of Townlands which can be reviewed at this
Townland Index by Barony.
