Step 7) The old church at Kilmihil (re BUTLER and FITZPATRICK ancestors)

Before I headed off to find Craggaknock, I spent a short time visiting the old church and the graveyard at Kilmihil.

Whereas the new church was built in 1831, the old church, St Michael's Church was founded around 530AD when St Senan dedicated the church to St Michael. The name of the town, Kilmihil, means Church of St. Michael the Archangel.

Next step on my County Clare journey:

  1. Despite the state of the old church, the graveyard is in better condition. So many really old graves.
