Clogga is a townsland situated in the parish of Mooncoin, which is found in the south-east of Ireland in the County of Kilkenny. Clogga is thought to have been given its name from the Irish word "cloch" which means 'stone' or perhaps "cnoic" which means 'hill'. In early records its spelt 'Clogath' or 'Clogadh', the 'adh' signifying 'little'. So 'Land of Little Stones' . The land would have been very rocky historically so this is probably where the name originated. It is the biggest townsland in Mooncoin and has a great history.
