"DROMOD, a parish and post town in the barony of Iveragh, in the county of Kerry, province of Munster, Ireland, 7 miles S.E. of Cahersiveen, its post town, and 11 from Longford by the Sligo branch of the Midland Great Western railway. It is situated near the embouchure of the river Inny into Ballinaskelligs Bay, with Lough Curran on the right. The surface is for the greater part waste, upland, and bog. The living is united to that of Prior, in the diocese of Ardfert and Aghadoe, value £260, in the patronage of the crown. The church is a ruin, but service is held in one of the schoolhouses. There is a Roman Catholic chapel here, and one at Prior. The endowed school was founded by James O'Connell, Esq., and there are parochial and other schools within the parish. The residences are Waterville and Dromod Lodge. Lough Curran abounds with fish, and large quantities of salmon are annually sent to London. Numerous islets stud its surface; among them is Church Island, with interesting church ruins, supposed to be part of an abbey founded in honour of St. Finian. There is a medicinal spring at Waterville. Large quantities of seaweed from the bay are used as manure. Good building stone is quarried."
