|Kilfaughnabeg Church - the little church of Fachtna - was consecrated on the 12th September 1861 and since then has served the small Church of Ireland community in the parish.|
|Access to this unique Church is through a tunnel cut through the rock face that leads visitors to one of the most spectacular views of Glandore harbour.
However, its future was at risk because of the dangerous condition of the tower.
Immediate remedial action was needed as there was a very real risk that it would collapse. A cross-community committee was formed to raise the money necessary to save the tower, and the Church.
|As well as launching a Sponsor a Stone campaign the committee applied for, and received, a grant from West Cork Development Partnership Ltd. The grant meant that work on the tower could start at the beginning of March.|
The pupils of Glandore National School have also produced an Historical Trail Map of the Glandore area which will be available in the church during the summer months.
The Glandore community is still in the process of raising the 25% of the overall cost so if you would like to help you could 'Sponsor a Stone' in your name, or for loved ones or in memory of a loved one please click here
