The name of the parish (Irish: Cill Tiobraid) translates as "the Church of the Well", a reference to the ancient church in the townland of the same name in Muintir Eolais. This building was substantially demolished during Penal times. This remaining ruins are located beside a holy well dedicated to Saint Patrick. Folklore relates that well was infilled when the church was demolished, but sprang up a short distance away. The townland of Kiltubrid was the ancient centre of the parish.
