There are two churches in the Parish of Tynagh and Killeen. Saint Laurence's Church, Tynagh and The Sacred Heart Church, Killeen, formally known as St Corban's Catholic Church, Killeen South, Ballyshrule, Ballinasloe. Our Lady of Kilcorban and Our Lady of Tynagh span 800 years of Christian devotion. Our Lady of Kilcorban is an old wood carving originating west of the Shannon about 1200 AD. In the 15th century it had its own chapel in the Dominican Priory, Kilcorban. Our Lady of Kilcorban is the oldest known wooden statue of its kind in Ireland, currently in the Clonfert Museum in Loughrea. Tynagh was famous for its lead and zinc mine which was a hive of activity in the 1970s but closed in 1980.
