This church was built shortly after the Great Famine and consecrated in 1859.
Saint Columbcille is said to have come to this parish sometime in the 6th century and he or one of his monks founded a monastery here.
The first chapel in Carrickmore, dating back to monastic times, stood on the north side of Mullinalap.
Prior to the erection of this church, Roman Catholic parishioners would have likely attended the RC chapel at Rocktown aka Creggandevesky.
