There has been a church at this site since the 12th

It probably replaced the old church on St. Mogue's Island and was acquired by Queen Elizabeth in 1590. It started use as a Protestant church in in about 1610.
The name Templeport comes from the Irish 'Teampall An Phoirt' which translates to 'Church of the landing place'.
