Kildorrery is a village on the Mitchelstown to Mallow road. It is most associated with the novelist Elizabeth Bowen, who lived at Bowen's Court in nearby Farahy village, and is buried in Farahy graveyard. About 4km NE, on the North side of the Funcheonin Aghacross are Saint Molga's Well and Church.
