Appraisal

Ballinamore Church, standing on an elevated site on Church Lane, holds a prominent position in the town. Much of its original fabric remains intact. It is modestly designed, yet striking in appearance. The incorporation of a variety of decorative materials makes it significant. The church is a focal point for its congregation and is therefore socially important within Ballinamore.
