Killonaghan Church, Craggagh

Map Reference: M131062 (1131, 2062)

This church is said to have been founded by St Onchon in the early 7th century. It is a rectangular building measuring 14.5m by 6.5m and was reported to have been in a good state of preservation at the end of the 19th century. The east gable still stands to full height and there are good portions of the north wall. However the rest of the ruin is very low. There was a doorway in the middle of the north wall where there is now a large gap. The most important remaining architectural feature is the tall east window. This is a long, narrow slit with semicircular head and external moulding.
