This publication brings to five the number in the series 'Research papers in Irish archaeology'. This volume on the early medieval church in Ireland is a fruit of the one-day seminar on the same theme held in the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland in Dublin on 20th November, 2010. Current research illustrates a greater complexity to the early Irich churh than was previously understood. This is refelcted in the present volume, where the records and narratives of a range of early church sites are explored. It is now glaringly obvious that when we use the term 'early Irish churh' we run the risk of creating a false impression of a homogenous organisation of Christianity in Ireland. Nothing could be further from the truth, and it is now underrstood that each church founded in early medieval Ireland has a unique story to tell as regards its organisation, funtion and evolution.
