Killeely Church

Joseph Murphy

St. Foila, founder of this church was described by Mons. J Fahey as follows; “ We are assured that her reputation for sanctity during her lifetime was widespread, and attested by the performance of many miracles ”. Such was the fame of St. Foila that her tomb in her church became a place of pilgrimage. The church continued in use up to the 19 th century when a ‘hedge school’ operated in it.
