Fenagh is a very ancient and historic Parish, it is noted for its abbeys which at one time was a great monastery. It was once the home of St Caillin who kept a bell there called St Caillin's Bell or the Bell of Fenagh. It is still to be seen at the Catholic Church at Foxfield Parish of Fenagh.
St Caillin collected his annual dues for the upkeep of the Monastery, in this bell. The full of it was sufficient for the year. His greedy servant to make it hold more had the tongue pulled out of the bell, but it held no more. St Caillin cursed him and said one of his name would never prosper in the parish of Fenagh.

note: St Caillin's Bell is a small, oval shaped Bronze Bell - tongue missing to be seen in the Parochal House Foxfield. P. Reynolds.
The ancient name of this bell was Clog na Ríogh. P.R.
