Detached three-bay single-storey Board of First Fruits style Church of Ireland church with three-stage tower, built 1847. The building consists of the rectangular gable-ended nave with a small gabled vestry projection to the east and the tower to the west. The fa├žade is finished in unpainted roughcast with granite string courses to the tower. The pitched roof of the nave is slated as is that of the vestry projection, whilst the roof of the tower is hidden by a crenellated parapet with tall corner pinnacles. The entrance is to the west face of the tower and consists of a pointed arch timber tongue and groove door screen with double door with strap hinges. Stone steps with wrought-iron guardrail. The windows are uniform with pointed arch heads, timber Y-tracery frames and small leaded hexagonal panes. The church is set in a clearing in a well-wooded area with a short lane leading to the road.


Neat, well preserved Church of Ireland church of 1847 in simple, largely unadorned Gothic style. The church is of considerable local significance, having been built (along with Saint Kevin's Catholic Church) as part of a Famine relief programme.
