KILMANLOE, or KILROE, a parish, in the barony of DUHALLOW, county of CORK, and province of MUNSTER; containing 1291 inhabitants. This parish, which is also called Scarlane, is situated close to the town of Kanturk, of which it forms a suburb, but for all civil purposes it is considered to form part of the parish of Kilbrin. It is a rectory, in the diocese of Cloyne, partly impropriate in Colonel Longfield, of Longueville, and partly appropriate to the economy fund of the cathedral of Cloyne: the tithes, amounting to £128, are payable in equal portions to the impropriator and the appropriators. There is no provision for the cure of souls, but the perpetual curate of Kanturk performs the occasional duties.

In the R. C. divisions it forms part of the union or district of Kanturk. About 80 children are educated in three private schools.
