Baldungan Castle & Church

At the top of a hill overlooking Loughshinny stands the ruins of a Medieval church which is said to have been originally built by the Knights Templar. There was also a castle on the site which was sacked in June 1642 during the Confederacy Wars when two of the towers were blown up. The castle was never repaired and over the intervening years fell gradually into ruins, very little of which now exists.
