St Naile's Church in the Parish of Kinawley, in the Diocese of Kilmore, was built between the years 1867–1876 near a site that was used for worship from the 6th century. It was rededicated on 4 August 2002.
The church is dedicated to Saint Náile (alias Saint Natalis), a contemporary of Saint Colmcille. St Naile became the second Abbott on Devinish, which was one of the great monastic settlements during the Golden Age of Christianity in Ireland.
