Christ Church, Kilfaughnabeg – the little church of Fachtna – is one of the most beautifully situated churches in Ireland.  Perched on a rocky ledge overlooking Glandore Harbour its access through a stone tunnel leads to a place of peace and calm.

Christ Church was consecrated on the 12th September 1861 and since then has served the local Church of Ireland community.  However in the summer of 2012 its future was at risk because of the dangerous condition of the tower.   Everyone agreed that it would be a tragedy if this important and beautiful landmark were allowed to fall into ruin so, following a public meeting, a cross community committee was formed to protect and restore this iconic church.
