Killoughey, officially Killoughy and historically "Killaghy" or "Killahy" (Irish: Cill Achaidh, meaning "church of the field"),[1] is the name of a townland and civil parish south-west of Tullamore in County Offaly, Ireland.

Before 1784 there were two distinct parishes of Killoughey and Ballyboy. The two parishes were united in 1784 and today form one parish of Kilcormac and Killoughy of the diocese of Meath.

The two main villages in the Killoughy end of the Parish are Blue Ball and Mount Bolus.
