There are three old ruins of castles in this parish.
(continued from previous page)

About two miles to the south of Baltard castle is situated the ruin of St Lenan's church and altar in the parish of Killard now called the new Doonbeg parish because the new and principal church in the Parish is built in Doonbeg.

This spot where St Senan's Church and altar are situated is one of the most remarkable places in Clare. A bell fell from heaven on the spot where the altar was erected.
