Saint Fechin's Church and Cemetery
St Féichín was born in the townland of Billa in the parish of Ballysadare. He is said to have studied under St. Nath Í of Achonry further to the south in the same territory.
The word Bile means a sacred tree or grove. The townland is the location of the Leaba St. Féichín or St. Feichins bed.
The town developed near a church founded by St. Féichín, some time before he died in 664 AD (O’Rorke 1878, 1-4). This monastic site is in Kilboglashy townland and the remains consist of a stone church known as the Great Temple of St. Féichín (Teampal mór Féichín), with a later Romanesque style carved doorway, two small buildings and a graveyard.
The O'Duillenain, were erenachs of Ballysadare.
