Glaspatrick Church, Murrisk in Co. Mayo

The ruins of the church at Glaspatrick, 2 kilometres west on the Louisburgh road from Murrisk Abbey, are overgrown and in poor condition, but it is thought that this church belongs to the medieval period probably the early 12th century. A cemetery surrounding this church is small, and was mainly used for the burial of islanders of Clew Bay.

The inscriptions on the headstones span many decades, and the graveyard is still used for occasional burials. A Holy Well still exists in the graveyard - situated beside the outer dry stone wall.
