Also in the parish there is a church at Kilmurry. The church is no longer in use. There has been a church on this site for over 1,000 years. The original Celtic church was believed to have been founded by St Muchoróg (also called Mo-chuaroch).

By 1615, the church was in ruins and rebuilt around 1625. However, this church was destroyed during the Williamite wars in 1690/1. It was rebuilt by Colonel Kilner Brazier in 1812 and dedicated to St Mary Magdalene. There is a graveyard adjoining the church.
