Thank you to Shane Lorigan of Lorigan Media for this lovely video of his home village.
A church dedicated to St Michael the Archangel was believed to have been built here, by St Senan, around 530AD. The medieval church ruins can be seen in the old graveyard.
Adjacent to the old graveyard and church ruins are a holy well that can be traced back to the 1630s and St Michael’s Shrine completed in 1937.
The economy is primarily agricultural and for many years a successful mart was based in the village.
This site has a section dedicated to the History of Kilmihil where you can find out more and also access a certain amount of genealogy information.
