The native Saint of this place is St Colman. ...

The native saint of this place is St. Colman. He lived here long ago. He built seven churches near each other. They are in ruins now. It is said that there is a long cave under the churches. It is a passage saint colman used for passing from one church to the other. There was a door in the floor of every church.
Near the churches there is a well and whoever washes his face in it will never get sore eyes. The churches are overlooking Corcomruad Abbey.
