About Agha Church

Agha Church in Agha, Co. Carlow.

Agha Church has been described as 'one of the most striking examples of pre-Romanesque architecture in the country'. Agha's early history is obscure although it is mentioned in the Life of St. Fintan and may have been subordinate to Fintan's monastery at Clonenagh, Co.Laois. In 866, Agha, which was positioned on the borders of the Irish kingdom of Ui Drona, was raided by the Vikings and the men of the neighbouring kingdom of Ossory. The present church, part of which dates to the tenth century, may represent a rebuilding which was undertaken in the wake of that attack.
