Myshall (Irish: Míseal (derived from Maigh Íseal), meaning 'the low plain')[2] is a village, townland and civil parish in County Carlow, Ireland. The village is 22 km (14 mi) southeast of Carlow town, on the slopes of Mount Leinster and on the R724 regional road.

Adelaide Memorial Church[edit]

The Church of Ireland Adelaide Memorial Church of Christ the Redeemer in Myshall is a miniature version of Salisbury Cathedral. Completed in 1913, Dover-based businessman, John Duguid, commissioned it in memory of his daughter Constance, who was killed in a horse riding accident while visiting her sister in Myshall, and her mother Adelaide, who died in 1903. Both are buried here.[citation needed]

The parish of Myshall has five cemeteries: three in the village itself, one about a mile out the Carlow road, and one in Drumphea about two miles from the village.[3]


Myshall is home to Naomh Eoin GAA club. Since its formation the club has won 18 Carlow Senior Hurling Championships. They are also the only Carlow team to have won a senior hurling and football double (in 1986) and an U-21 hurling and football double in 2010. The Juvenile Teams range from U6-to U18 or Minor.[4]

Myshall is also the home of Myshall Camogie Club. This club won the county camogie championship for 15 years in a row and 3-in-a-row in the Leinster junior club competition (2011, 2012, and 2013) and were All-Ireland junior club champions in 2012 and 2013.[citation needed]
