Churches -  Monuments of County Clare
The earliest stone churches in Ireland are scarcely likely to be older that the 9th century and were probably modelled on the already existing wooden churches, which they replaced. These early churches ranged from small, dry-stone oratories, to churches with naves and chancels, to decorated Romanesque churches. Some churches were built during the Norman period, but the main period of church building was post-Norman, during the 15th and 16th centuries. There are over 150 of these older churches surviving in County Clare.
