Killursa was the site of a monastery established in the 7th century by St Fursa/Fursey, a saint whose transcendental visions of heaven and hell are believed to have inspired Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’. 

The church on the site is the only remnant of the monastery and is thought to date to around the 12th or 13th century due to its gothic style features.
