Fermanagh Gold Introduction

Colaghty Church was built in 1844 but church records begin in 1837. 

It had originally been part of the Church of Ireland parish of Magheraculmoney. Previously services were held in Lack old school near the former creamery at the edge of the village on the old road to Ederney. 

It is unclear why this church was not erected in Lack the chief local centre of population despite the fact that the rectory was built there. Unlike the vicinity of many churches the local area has never developed as a centre of education, entertainment or had a shop. Its only immediate public building had been a B Special training hut.
