The Schools and Churches within the Kinneigh Union of Parishes
|The ancient Round Tower at Kinneigh.
St Bartholomew's Church, Kinneigh, is on the site of an ancient medieval monastery with a history on the site that stretches back to early Celtic times. Now its Round Tower is the only visible remains. The tower is the only one in Ireland to stand on a hexagonal base. This tower dates from around 1000 AD and it is thought that it provided shelter for monks as well as their writings from ongoing waves of ravaging raiders from abroad. Inside are six chambers.
