The parish of Killybegs, Na Cealla Beaga, (the Little Cells or the little churches) has probably existed since medieval times in common with many other parishes in the ancient See of Raphoe. “The origin and position of ‘The Little Churches’ from which this parish derives its name are nowhere explained in ecclesiastical history or on the biographies of our saints. Tradition presents the village as dedicated to St Catherine as its patron when the ‘Little Churches’ or monastic ‘cells’ were first erected on its peaceful banks.” ( A History of the Diocese of Raphoe, E Maguire 1920).
