Teaghlach Éinne

The Church of Saint Enda

Located in the graveyard in Cill Éinne. This is the church of Saint Enda, who is credited with being the founder of monasticism in Ireland in to 5th century AD. The church shows development over a very long period. The east and north walls, as far as the doorway, belong to an early church while the rest is of late, or post medieval. Some cross slabs, part of a late 11th century high cross and some inscribed stones are on the site.
