Welcome to the Parish of Knockninny. Knockninny Parish is in Co. Fermanagh and we have two churches – St. Ninnidh’s in Derrylin and St. Mary’s in Teemore.
The name Knockninny is derived from the Irish ‘Cnoc Ninnidh’, meaning The Hill of Ninnidh.
St Ninnidh was born at the end of the 5th Century and is regarded as one of the twelve apostles of Ireland.
On The Hill of Ninnidh (now known as Knockninny Rock), Ninnidh was accustomed to spend the season of Lent in solitutude and prayer.
