General information

Aghalurcher Church

St. Ronan is said to have founded a church here in the 7th century. The ruins we see today are from the medieval period. The Maguires, the chieftains of Fermanagh, patronised this church.

Aghalurcher comes from the Irish Achadh Urchair, the field of the cast or throw, taking its name from the old tradition handed down of St Ronan throwing a stone to determine the site of his church. The first throw landed in Inishcollan, and being an island was very much out of the way, and not thought

suitable. A second throw landed on the present site.
