Excavation at Church Road and the early monastic fondation at Lusk

The village of Lusk is located approximately four miles north of Swords on the Dublin to Skerries road. It is perhaps best known as the site of an early medieval monastic foundation, reputedly founded during the 5th century AD by the saint MacCuillinn, whose obit was recorded in the Annals of Ulster in AD 496 or 498 (AU 498).
