Freestanding Church of Ireland church, built c.1810, comprising three-bay hall with attached three-stage tower on square-plan to the west with a raised parapet with English-style crenellations. Now roofless (originally pitched), heavily overgrown and out of use. Roughcast rendered walls with roughcast rendering over. Pointed-arched openings to hall and belfry. Set in graveyard bounded by rubble stone wall with gate piers on square plan and wrought-iron gates to east.


An attractive early nineteenth-century Church of Ireland church, built in a subdued Gothic style, which retains its early form and character despite its ruinous and overgrown condition. Its layout is typical of the standard hall and tower church, which were built in great numbers, particularly between 1808-1830, using loans and grants from the Board of First Fruits (1722-1833). These small, simple, but well-built churches have become almost iconographic features of the rural Irish countryside. The ruinous tower adds incident to the skyline, whilst the graveyard, with some finely carved grave markers, and the good boundary wall and gates creates an impressive setting for the church.
