Description

The fame of Enaghdún in Christian times is due chiefly to St. Brendan the Navigator, Patron of the parish, who founded a monastery and convent here in the sixth century, less than a hundred years after the death of St. Patrick. A study of this lonely spot by the lake is a meditation on the growth of the Christian faith from its earliest days in our parish. We invite you to follow us on our journey through the ecclesiastical ruins at this hallowed spot.
