DUBLIN, IRELAND Dublin City Council website has the following : "The ruins of Kilbarrack Church stand on the north coast of Dublin and can be viewed from the Howth Road. The church was built for the assistance of shipwrecked sailors and is sometimes known as 'the Mariner's Church'. The church is noted in some records as 'the Chapel of Mone' and was formerly of St Mary's Abbey. For a period, ships entering Dublin Bay paid duties to the authorities in order to maintain the church."
