From A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, 1837

CLONMULT, a parish, partly in the baronies of IMOKILLY, and KINNATALOON, but chiefly in that of BARRYMORE, county of CORK, and province of MUNSTER, 5 ½ miles (S. W.) from Tallow, on the road to Castle-Martyr; containing 1128 inhabitants. It comprises 3850 statute acres, as applotted under the tithe act, and valued at £2491 per annum. The surface is generally mountainous and wild, and agriculture is in an imperfect state. The village contains about 20 cabins. The living is a rectory and vicarage, in the diocese of Cloyne, and in the patronage of the Bishop: the tithes amount to £225. In the R. C. divisions the parish forms part of the union or district of Castle-Martyr, and has a chapel in the village of Clonmult. There is a private school of about 20 children.
