Mavis,I note that nobody has offered any inkling to your query.Heres my own tuppence worth indeed for all its worth.The half parish you may be referring to is either Glenisland or Islandeady.Local people tell me that both townlands were once in the same parish.They are uncertain if there were actually two churches in existence at that time and possibly only one priest.The townlands covered quite an area and perhaps it was prudent to halve the parish and get another priest but the eventual outcome was indeed a halved parish.Dont know if this helps you.
