Christianity reached the parish of Ballinasloe as early as the time of Saint Patrick when Saint Grellan was consecrated by him and established his foundation in Kilclooney. Saint Raoilin established his church in Creagh. Kilclooney and Creagh became parishes after the Synod of Kells in 1152. The foundation stone of the present Saint Michael's church was laid in 1852 and Our Lady of Lourdes church was dedicated on August 18, 1931
