The historical Parish of Kiltullagh is situated at the Western edge of County Roscommon adjoining the counties of Mayo and Galway. The Parish has three churches in the villages of Ballinlough, Cloonfad and Granlahan.
The name Kiltullagh comes from the Irish words “Cill”, meaning church and “Tulach”, meaning a small hill.
Historical records tell us that a local chief,Enda O’Flynn, was converted to Christianity by St. Patrick and gave land to the saint for the building of a church on Cill Tulach or Kiltullagh – which became the name of the parish.
