Killevy Churches

An old cemetery surrounds the ruins of the two churches built end-to-end. The Eastern church dates back to the Middle Ages and its glass canopy from the 15C. The Western church is older (12C) and its façade, with an entrance topped by a massive lintel, could even be from the 10 or 11C. A granite flagstone in the northern part of the cemetery is supposed to cover the tomb of St Monenna who founded a major convent of nuns in Killevy in the 5C.
