Historical Overview

History

Urney is a parish located partly in the barony of Upper, but chiefly in that of Lower Loughtee, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster. The town of Cavan is situated in the parish. The living is a vicarage, in the diocese of Kilmore, united by episcopal authority, apparently at an early date, to the vicarage of Annageliffe, and in the patronage of the Bishop; the rectory is partly appropriate to the Dean of Kilmore, and partly to the vicars choral of Christ-Church, Dublin.

In the Roman Catholic divisions the parish is the head of a union or district, comprising also the parish of Annageliffe, and commonly called the union of Cavan. There were two Catholic chapels in the parish, one in Cavan and the other in Coolboyague, built in 1810. There were also a place of worship for Presbyterians in connection with the Synod of Ulster, as well as two chapels for Primitive and Wesleyan Methodists.
