Aughagower, or Aghagower which translates from Irish (Achadh Ghobhair) as 'the plain of the springs' was an important Patrician centre.
One of the monuments still in existence is the 'Leaba Phadraig' (St Patrick's Bed) where the saint is reputed to have slept. Pilgrims performed stations between the bed and the holy well, Tobair na nDeachan (the well of the deacons) which has now dried up.
The lovely historic village of Aughagower is dominated by the striking tenth century round tower and a medieval church, both partly restored.
The round tower was built between 973 and 1013 and, legend has it, the top section, having been struck by lightening, landed on the hill of Tavenish, half a mile distant.
An enterprising local woman picked up the cap stone and whisked it off in her apron to the church where it is still to be seen today.
