St. Nahi’s is a small church here in Dundrum/Churchtown, Dublin, Ireland. It is located on a very ancient site where it is thought there was a monastic settlement as early as the 7th century.

St Nahi’s Church
St Nahi’s stands on the original site of Dundrum Parish Church where according to official records, a church was built about 800AD probably on the ruins of a still older building. It was dedicated to St Nathy or Nahi – a Saint of the very early Irish Church who is thought to have lived in a monastery at Churchtown about 600AD. St Nahi’s was rebuilt several times – in 950, 1650 and in 1750.The present restoration was completed in 1910
The present St Nahi’s Church was erected in the middle of the 18th Century. It was consecrated on 8th June 1760. It was designed as a simple rectangular box shape.
