KÎLRHEDYN (CÎL-RHEDYN), a parish, in the union of NEWCASTLE-EMLYN, partly in the hundred of ELVET, county of CARMARTHEN, and partly in that of KILGERRAN, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 5 miles (S.W.) from Newcastle-Emlyn. This place is situated on the Star road leading from Carmarthen to Cardigan. The parish, the greater part of which is in Carmarthenshire, is intersected by the small river Cych, which here forms the boundary line between the two counties. The river Pedran winds through the lands, which are in some places low and flat, and in others hilly, ornamented occasionally with oak and other timber. The church is situated in the county of Pembroke, and dedicated to St. Teilo. There are places of worship for Independents, Baptists, and Presbyterians.
