About

Banagher Church is an impressive ruin with the nave being built around 1100. The date 474 on the west door was carved in the 18th century and near by is a small house shaped tomb, which is said to be that of St. Muiredach O'Heney's, founder of the church. Sand from the tomb is said to bring the beneficiary good luck!
