It has three churches – Roman Catholic (St. Michael and John’s, built in 1898 ), Church of Ireland (St. Kiernan’s, 1830 ) and Methodist ( 1875 ). There is a story which relates that the first De Marisco, who resided here, was a Norman who had travelled to the Holy Land to take part in a Crusade against the Saracen invaders. He is said to have brought back a stone from the River Jordan which he built in over the doorway of this castle and it was from that stone that the village got its name – the Stone of Jordan – Clogh Shiúrdáin – Cloughjordan. Cloughjordan was further developed in the late 17th century by Cromwellian grantees when Colonel John Harrison , an officer in Cromwell's army , was granted an estate of 1484 acres of land around Cloughjordan in payment for his military services. Harrison built a house, now known as Cloughjordan House, at the site of the original Norman Castle of De Marisco and incorporated the old castle into the new building, in which one wall of the castle, about seven and a half feet thick, is still in existence to this day.
