St Cronan's church, Tuamgraney
St Cronan founded a church on this site in the 6th century but was plundered by the Vikings in 886 and 949 and the present church was built shortly after that, with additions in the 12th and 19th centuries. It is said to be the oldest church to be in continuous use in all of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. Also it is recorded that Brian Boru used this church and provided for its ongoing repairs.
