Banagher Church is an impressive ruin with the nave being built around 1100. The date 474 on the west door was carved in the 18th century and near by is a small house shaped tomb, which is said to be that of St. Muiredach O'Heney's, founder of the church. Sand from the tomb is said to bring the beneficiary good luck!
