Kilglass or Kilglas[1] (Irish: Cill Ghlas) is a village in County Sligo, Ireland. The wider Parish of Kilglass includes, as well as the village itself, the nearby town of Enniscrone.

Kilglass has a Catholic church — the Church of the Holy Family — and a primary school, Kilglass National School. The Jesus and Mary Secondary School is 4 km away in Enniscrone town. It also has a Protestant church.

The name[edit]

Although Cill Ghlas is the official Irish-language version of the name Kilglass today,[2] it is believed that the most likely derivation is that it is a corruption of Cill Molaise (St Molash's church).[3]

Public transport[edit]

Kilglass is served by Bus Éireann route 458 (Sligo-Enniscrone-Ballina).[4]
