The first catholic church at Dregish was built around 1785, a humble building with a thatched roof and clay floor. The site is now marked by Father O’Flaherty’s cross in the graveyard beside the present church. The present church of Saint Mary’s was built in 1846 and has been in continual use since then. The project was begun under the guidance of Fr Patrick MacFeely, the Parish Priest, and then completed by his successor, Fr Edward Kelly. The Latin inscription carved on a tablet on the outside front wall of the church reads in translation:

In honour of the Most Holy Trinity

This Temple was built
Under the protection of Blessed Mary
Virgin Mother of God

31st October 1846
