St Colman's Church

This small church or oratory seems to have been extended to the west and the south. There is very little information to be found about the church. The graveyard behind the Cathedral/Templemore is the location of St Colman's Grave. We were wondering if this oratory was a small tomb shrine that may have housed the relics of the saint. On our next visit I hope to get a few close up images, It would be interesting to see if there were antae present before the church was extended. The remaining gable certainly suggests it was much smaller originally.

Situated: Situated: From Gort in Galway head southwest on the R460 for 6 kilometres. Walk straight through the cemetery passed the Round Tower.
