About Church Island

Church Island in Lough Currane, Co. Kerry.

St. Finan Cam ( -661), an Irish monk, who trained at Iona in Scotland and later became Bishop of Lindisfarne, founded a monastery on this island in the 6th Century. There is the ruins of a late 12th century church with a Romanesue doorway, a beehive hut (clochan), three alters, ten cross slabs, pillar stones and a grave reputed to be that of St. Finan.
