The patron saint of this district is Saint Sinon. He lived in Scattery, an island in the Shannon. There are several churches called after him in this district. He was supposed to have visited Killard where there are the ruins of a church and graveyard. The Catholic Church in Doonbeg is called St. Sinon's Church. A great many people are called Senan when baptised but the form used is not Senan but Sinon. While St. Sinon lived in Scattery he allowed no woman to enter the island. At the present day there are to be seen in Scattery Island the ruins of seven churches and a round tower which were built by St. Sinon. This round tower is the best preserved of all the round towers in Ireland. St. Sinon is buried on Scattery Island. St. Patrick never came to Clare but when he came to the bank of the Shannon he blessed Clare and said that a great saint would rise up there. He meant St. Sinon.
