Killaspugbrone ChurchThis small church dates back to the 12th century, perhaps earlier. Legend has it that Saint Patrick lost a tooth near the site and the church was erected in the area in his honor. Around the church is an old overgrown cemetery used by the residents of near-by Coney Island up until the 1960s. A fence borders the church but intrepid adventurers have bypassed it and walked around inside. This is not recommended as the church is very old and not exactly structurally sound.
