The Larne Historic Church Trail website is for Larne and the surrounding areas and details the history of churches in these areas.

From the Larne Churches website:

“Welcome to the Larne Historic Church Trail.  This easy-to-follow trail will guide you around some of the oldest churches and graveyards in County Antrim.  A number of these sites, such as Templecorran, date back to the Early Christian period in Ireland.  Glynn Old Church and Churchyard is said to have links with St Patrick himself!  Others have their roots in the medieval period.  But all of them have played a vital role in shaping the Christian heritage of this region….and beyond.

“A number of the sites on this trail still serve as places of worship – St Patrick’s in Glenarm for example, and St John’s in Islandmagee, one of the oldest places of worship in Ireland still in regular use.  Others are now derelict – their churches in ruins.  But each site tells a story, built into the stone work of its walls, and inscribed on the memorials in the churchyard.”
