The present St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland parish church (known locally as Badoney), built in 1784, is though to occupy the site of an early Christian monastery. The 'doney' element of the name indicates a very early foundation, certainly during the first phase of Christianity in Ireland. It may be the Both-Domnach, one of the St. Patrick's seven foundations in the area of the Moyola River.  This site forms part of the Journey Through Time, archaeological and historical tour of the Foyle and Sperrins area.
