Located in the townland of Aghalurcher Glebe and within two miles (3 km) of Lisnaskea are the ruins of the ancient church of Aghalurcher, said to have been built towards the close of the 9th century, and dedicated to Saint Ronan. The Ordinance Survey memoir of 1835 notes a stone at the entrance to the graveyard.

St Ronan's stone (Cloch Rónáin) upon which the Catholics rest the coffins containing the remains of their relatives and friends whilst the graves are prepared, imagining that this contact will be of some service to the souls of the departed
