1916 Petition by Residents of Knocknagoshel to the Bishop of Kerry to split off Knocknagoshel from the Diocese of Brosna The petition was granted.  25.6.16

Your Lordship:

We the undersigned Parishioners of Knocknagoshel, and representing as we do the unanimous wishes of 440 Householders request your Lordship to grant us a resident Parish Priest. This is not the first time this request has been of the Bishop of Kerry but for various reasons was not granted. For instance on one occasion we were too late in mailing our request as the P.P. had been apppointed. On another occasion we were told by the Bishop that the debt on the Brosna Presbytery was too heavy, but that is now paid off. Your Lordship will permit us to indicate that the long distances Priests and people have to travel for sick calls and other matters to and from Brosna - from Meenganare, Broughane, and Knights mountain - places because of the distances - 12 to 14 miles, and the hilly roads take 2 1/2 to 3 hours to reach, and the nearest house in the parish is 4 miles from Brosna. The Knocknagoshel Church itself is over an hour's drive from Brosna. On behalf of the sick, the general convenience of the people, and because we believe that the young and the old will be benefitedby the presence and example of a Priest, we beg your Lordship to grant us this blessing. In conclusion we beg to add that we are prepared to do all in our power to meet your Lordship's requirements in this matter if you kindly acceede to our earnest request.
