The context is "praefectus Ballinaicae paraeciae/difficil[l]imo R. P. tempore/sedandis civium motibus/operam navavit". Could it mean 'parish'?

A mural slab inserted in the chapel-yard wall has:

"Sacred to the memory of the Rev. Philip Purcell, late indefatigable Pastor of this Parish, who, from the liberal donations of its union, built and ornamented this chapel, in the year 1791, on ground cheerfully bestowed by John Burke O'Flaherty Esqr. May the Lord have mercy on his soul. Amen."

RATHDOWNEY - There was no chapel whatever in the town of Rathdowney from the Reformation to the year 1820. For a few years preceding the latter date, however, public Mass was celebrated, on Sundays, in the town or its neighbourhood, especially in a large, waste house which stood a few hundred yards from the town, on the right of the road to Lavally, in a field now belonging to John Dunne. In the end of 1817 a 31 years' lease of the site of the present chapel of Rathdowney was secured by the principal Catholic inhabitants of the town. In the Spring of 1818 the chapel was commenced, and on Christmas Day, 1820, the Holy Mass was offered up within it for the first time. In 1867 it was repaired by Dr. Lynch, who also added, at the same time, the sanctuary, sacristy and belltower. These improvements are commemorated on a small slab over the front entrance door, inscribed:-

"Hanc ecclesiam jampridem collabentem restauravit & ornavit Adm. Revdus. G. Lynch, nujusce paraeciae Pastor, Anno Salutis MDCCCLXVII."

neutral  Olga Cartlidge: http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?search=parish&search from O.Fr. paroisse, from L.L. parochia " From the Greek para oikos = around the home. I just wonder why they should ve put "paraeciae" for "parish " when there was a word for this in late Latin

agree  BrigitteHilgner: Although the spelling is wrong, in my opinion (should be paroeciae) I agree with your translation.

agree  Jim Tucker (X): yes, though I'm not sure about the distinction between this and "parochia" - both Greek obviously, perhaps you can get paraecia from paroikia - but would have to be a pre-medieval version with a hard "c" like that
