Saint Enda's Church, Inishmore
Saint Enda's Church, Inishmore
Also known as Saint Enda's Monastery, the ancient ruined church of St Enda is located at Killeaney on Inis Mor, Aran Islands, Galway.

An information board near the church reads as follows:

Teaghlach Einde

The fame of Saint Edna's 6th century monastic school attracted saints and scholars to the island and earned for it the proud title of 'Aran of the Saints'
This church, dedicated to him, dates to about the 8th (?) century, but there are later alterations in the doorway and windows, and the west gable has been rebuilt.
