Lusmagh is the only parish in the diocese of Clonfert which is in County Offaly, and in the province of Leinster. Official records show Lusmagh as part of County Galway until the 17th century, hence its position in Clonfert diocese. In early Christian times the parish was called Kilmochonna as Saint Mochonna founded a monastery here around 600 AD. Saint Cronan also founded a monastery in the locality and the present day church (pictured on the left) and parish are dedicated to him.
