The Catholic Church at Inch would have been the church of the Fanning family. It was built on a slope, the bell tower has been put on the Church recently when it was done up. But when it was originally built the “supppression orders” were in place, so the Church had to hidden from the British as they were not allowed to build churches. The Bell Tower was on the ground next to the Church – to keep it hidden. Now it is on the top of the Church.
