Killursa is a medieval church and National Monument in County Galway, Ireland.
Killursa is located 2.6 km (1.6 mi) west of Headford.
A monastery was established here in the 7th century by Saint Fursey (Fursa).
The church on the current site dates from the 12th or 13th century, although the southwestern part is thought to be even older. It fell out of use around the 15th century.
The church is rectangular with mullioned Late Gothic window and trabeate doorway.
