St Columba’s Church

Iskaheen Parish

St. Columba’s Church in Drung

St. Columba’s was built in 1871 close to the site of an earlier church and was dedicated on Sunday the 5th of October 1871 by the most Rev.  Dr. Kelly, Bishop of Derry.

The parish priest was the Rev. Michael Farnan.


The parish of Iskaheen & Upper Moville has a long history going back to 1811.

Stretching from close to Moville, to the border at Muff, it covers a wide area.

There are currently about 5000 parishioners in the parish, served by three churches and two priests.

I hope you find this site informative and helpful.
