A tiny chapel for a powerful Saint

The tiny chapel at Gougane Barra, Ireland, where Saint Finnbarr had his monastery

One of the smallest chapels in Ireland is located here in Gougane Barra, where Saint Finnbarr built his monastery. Holding only about 30 people, groups can celebrate Mass here if they are traveling with a priest.  

Saint Finnbarr built a small monastery here (you can see the remains behind the current chapel) in the 7th Centrury.

Saint Finnbarr’s feast day is celebrated September 25th.
