Freestanding single-cell Church of Ireland church, built 1815, with four-bay elevations to nave, vestry to north, and two-stage tower to west. Now ruinous. Roofless, with crenellations and pinnacles to tower. Rendered walls with dressed limestone diagonal buttresses to corners, string courses to tower, and pilaster buttresses to south elevation of nave. Pointed-arch window openings with Y-tracery, hood-mouldings and stone sills. Pointed-arch louvred and square-headed window openings in tower, latter with triple casement lights, with hood and label-mouldings. Pointed-arch door opening to tower with cut limestone clustered jambs, imposts and timber battened double-leaf door and over-door. Graveyard to site, bounded by stone wall with dressed stone piers and cast-iron gates.


This Board of First Fruits-type Church of Ireland church takes advantage of an elevated site to gain a dominant position over the surrounding landscape and approach roads. Although ruined, the quality craftsmanship of its construction is evident in the ashlar masonry buttresses and pinnacles. It makes an interesting group with the graveyard to the site, and is an interesting counterpoint to the Catholic church nearby in Ballinree.
