Crohane Church

The parish is situated in the Barony of Sliveardagh and is bounded on the west by the parish of Killenaule, on the north and north-east by the parishes of Lickfinn and Ballingarry, and on the east by the parishes of Mowney (Magh Abhna).
This the place called Cruachan Muighe Abhnas i.e. Croaghane-Mowney and the festilogy of Aengus on the 5th of October, places in the territory of Eoganacht Chaisil. This is a certain fact due to the existence of a the well of the patron saint and of other names of places in its vicinity.
In 1615, there are records showing the ruins of an ancient church in Crohane. O’ Donovan letters in 1840 reported walls gone to the very foundation. It can be ascertained, however, that the building was twenty eight feet by twenty two feet.The walls were built of slate stones cemented with lime and sand mortar. About one hundred and fifty yards to the north of this graveyard, there is a holy well called the Virgin St. Sineach, the Patroness of Cruachan Moy-Owney, but no stations have been performed at it since the early 1880s.
The present Protestant church was built around 1839.  Ther was a small Catholic church that was blown down with the ‘Great Wind’.  The present site of Crohane is not on the old site.  The old site is not easily found, even though there was building construction done inside the church where the graves are.  When they were digging the graves, they often found the old mortar from the old church.  The oldest graves here are from the 1700s.
Locals say that it is possibly the only Protestant church that has a cross on it, due to the fact it was once a Catholic church.
