What Catholic churches would people have attended in the 1830s in Kilglass Parish?

My GGGG Grandparents lived in Townland Maugherabrach.

Did they possibly attend church in Enniscrone?

Would this church be still there?

My GGG Grandmother Ann Rogan (1779-1852) didnt leave Ireland with her family till 1842.

Would these churches be open when I would be visiting?

    The original chapel in Kilglass was built in 1825. See this link for the 1837 Lewis Topographical Dictionary entry for Kilglass parish   https://www.johngrenham.com/records/lewis.php?civilparishid=2100&civilpa...   The description does not indicate whether the chapel was in Enniscrone or another townland in the parish. I doubt the original chapel is still there but contact the parish  https://www.killaladiocese.org/parishes-ministries/parish-details/?paris... and I'm sure they can tell you.  When travel is allowed to Ireland, churches will be open for specified times based on local practices. Again, the parish can provide that information.
