The district being so near the city of Limerick is closely historically connected with it.
No doubt Ireton passed through it on his way to Limerick. There is a road in Kilmurry called "Cromwell's Road" altho' Cromwell never visited Limerick.
It was also on the Singland side of the district that King Wm. of Orange set his gun to besiege the city.
Sarsfield passed through the district on his way back to the city after blowing up the siege train at Ballyneety.
