Mooncoin Church

The first chapel built in this district, since the Reformation, stood in Ballytarsna, in a three-cornered field called the Coracleen.  It was a thatched chapel.  It was at one time burned down, but was again repaired by the people. Having been in use for about a century, Corracleen chapel was abandoned in 1802.  The late chapel of Mooncoin was then erected in its place by the Rev. John Fitzpatrick, PP.; and this, in turn gave place to the present parish church of Mooncoin, built by the Very Rev. Canon Walsh, PP., in 1869.
