Lusmagh Heritage Walk

The Parish of Lusmagh lies to the south of Banagher in the County of Offaly. It is bounded on three sides by rivers, (Shannon, Little Brosna and Lusmagh, or Rapemills, River), so it is almost an island. In church organisation it continues to be part of the Diocese of Clonfert, a Galway diocese. An ancient name: The word "Lusmagh" means "Herb (lus) Plain (magh),"
