The Roman Catholic Church, located 400m from the village on the Virginia Road , is named in memory of its patron Saint Kilian. Ruins of an earlier church "Teampeall Ceallaigh" remain in what is now part of the Church of Ireland grounds located further along the same road, approx 600m.
The village is situated approximately 2 kilometers from the border with County Meath and Leinster which is marked by the River Borora which flows into the Owenroe River at Mullagh bridge.
The environs of the village have witnessed substantial housing and industrial development in recent years. Mullagh's proximity to the new M3 motorway has had the effect of bringing Mullagh and south County Cavan within commuting distance from Dublin and larger towns in Leinster.
