  • I am sure it is St Columba's not St Columcille's

  • According to the Inventory of Irish Architectural Heritage this is St Columcille's. There is a St Columba's in Kells if that is what you're thinking of

  • Yes Kells, Co. Meath. The Church of Ireland parish church in Kells is dedicated to St Columba not St Columcille. Same person but it is nice to respect the naming as used. The Inventory of Irish Architectural Heritage is wrong to use that version of the name. Zoom in on the sign in their photographs. It clearly says St Columba's. 

    Also I don't think Kells is in the civil parish of Navan. Clicking on the link to 'Map' brings you to St Mary's church in Navan. Also Communities associated with this building are Newgrange and Navan. This page is seriously messed up!
