Mong Chapel

Mass Monthly - Check newsletter for details

For a few years before 1812, Mass was said here by a Friar from Knocktopher, in a thatched house on the site occupied later by the national school. The first chapel was built about 1812, and continued in use down to about 1880, when it was replaced by the present chapel.
