In 1849, the present day Diocese of Ross became an independant Diocese, having been united with the Diocese of Cloyne since 1748. After 1849, some of the priests in the Diocese of Ross might have spent some of their clerical ministry working in parishes in what are now part of the present day Diocese of Cloyne. For instance, we find Fr. Edmund Mulcahy as a curate in Aughabullogue – a parish in the present day Cloyne Diocese, prior to his appointment at curate in Aughadown (1848).

Fr. Edmund Mulcahy was a member of a well-known Cork family that had given several sons to the Church. His first-cousin, Fr. John Mulcahy, replaced him in the pastorate of Timoleague (1872).

For an insight into the life and times of Fr. Mulcahy we would recommend an article entitled; A Foe to Tyranny, – Rev Edmund Mulcahy, P.P., V.F. by John Mulcahy in the Journal of the Blarney & District Historical Society, Issue No. 5 (Millenium Edition).
