Our hope is to provide information and photographs of every site where there are some visible remains related to the early Church in Ireland. This means, very approximately, up to AD 1100
We hope that the photographs and map references will encourage you to visit these places. The names of saints connected to them, where known, are also given.
We hope that acquaintance with those who lived and prayed in these places will stimulate a sense of unity so much needed among the churches today.
