"BALLYNAHAGLISH, a parish, in the barony of TRUGENACKMY, county of KERRY, and province of MUNSTER 5½ miles (W.) from Tralee; containing 2,883 inhabitants. The parish is situated on the bay of Tralee, and comprises 2,875 statute acres, as applotted in the tithe acts.
The village of Taulert, or Chapeltown, lies on the south-eastern shore of the creek or harbour of Barra, and is partly inhabited by fishermen. On account of the fine bathing strand in Tralee bay, and a chalybeate spring of great power on the border of the parish and adjoining Clogherbrien, it is much frequented during the summer by visiters from Tralee and other places, for whose accommodation some neat bathing lodges have been erected."

[From A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland by Samuel Lewis (1837)]
