- Killaspugbrone is the ruins of an ancient church with an adjoining cemetery that rests on the extremity of the headland behind the airport at Strandhill.
- This church is the oldest church of the Barony of Carbury: which stretches from Sligo to Mullaghmore.
- It is said the chapel was originally enclosed in a cashel.
- It is likely the present ruin dates from the eleventh or twelfth centuries rather than being the ruins of the original church erected in the fifth century.
- The place name Killaspugbrone is based on three Irish words; Kill from cill meaning church, aspug from easbog meaning bishop, and Brón was the name of St Patrick’s disciple.
- This important Christian settlement was founded in the fifth century by St Patrick who gave the church to his disciple Bishop Bronus.
- Bishop Brón was a native of the Coolera area and held a special place in the affections of St Patrick because he helped propagate the new Christian faith.
