St Mary’s Church – Lagg
St Mary’s Church can be found at Lagg next to five finger strand beach, it is the second most northerly Catholic church.
The church was built in 1784 and sits in an idyllic spot amongst the dunes of Five Finger Strand, some of the highest dunes in Europe. It is one of the oldest churches still being used in Ireland today.
Outside the church at the back sits an ancient Baptismal Font which dates from the 6th century. It originally was from the old monastery at St. Mura’s, Fahan.
After visiting the church why not take a walk down the lane, 100 m or so, to the beautiful five finger strand beach.
