St Columb built the church of Cluain-laedh, where St Lugad, one of his disciples, is honoured.

St Carnech was Abbot and Bishop here about the year 530, and was succeeded by Cassan,

whose successor was Massan.

Clonleigh was anciently called Cruchanligen, or Drimligen. It is now a parish church.

(Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, Nicholas Carlisle, 1810)
