Kilcolgan

Kilcolgan or in the Irish language "Cill Colgain" means The church of Colga. The Village is named after Saint Colga, who founded her own monastery, now in ruins. Overlooking the estuary of the Dumkellin River lies Kilcolgan Castle. The Castle and Tyrone House, now in ruins was once the residence of the Saint George Family. Drumacoo Church, 3km west of Kilcolgan with its Gothic type doorway, is associated with Sr. Sorney, a 6th Century nun. The Church also contains the vaults of the Saint George Family.
