Killearnan Parish Church, Redcastle

Killearnan Parish Church dates from the 19th century but includes part of an earlier medieval building as suggested by the blocked arched doorway in the south wall (pictured here), a recumbent medieval effigy inside the church, and a 14th-century cross in the churchyard. In 1996 a silver groat from the reign of Edward III (1351-77) was found in a builder's spoil heap close to the church.

The tomb of the Reverend Kennedy (d. 1841), one of the churches most popular preachers, died in 1841 and his tomb can be seen in the churchyard. Reverend Kennedy held his services alternately in Gaelic and English
