There are no forges in the district. The only near one is at Kilonan. Long ago there was one at Kilmurray where MacMahon's shop is now. There was also one at Ballysimon Cross

The parish of Monaleen which is attached to St. Patrick's parish in Limerick has its patron Saints St. Patrick and St Mary Magdalene. Near St. Patrick's well there is an old flag on which there are the footprints of the Saint. The old legend says that the people near the place took St. Patrick's ass and that he cursed them.
