Drumady Methodist Church 1858, built on a site between the Lacky road and a stretch of the old Dublin road coming from Mullavea/ Killyliffer. This little church was originally Primitive Wesleyan i.e. that part of the Methodist movement which believed that it should remain as an evangelistic society within the Established Church. This movement was particularly strong Monaghan/Fermanagh with Clones as its centre. That the Methodist movement should become a separate church as was the wish of urban districts where many people who became the Methodists had no strong links to the Parish church. That Drumady was Primitive Wesleyan is probably why the Rev Richardson, who was a C. of I. clergyman felt able to lease the site for the meeting house. In later years most of the C. of I. bishops and some of the clergy strongly disapproved of Methodist preachers. By 1877 the two strands of Methodism had re-united as the Methodist Church in Ireland.
