The Kilsheelan Church seen from the north (15°).


The ruins of this church, dedicated to St. Sillan, date from the 12th century.
The church has an interesting Irish-Romanesque doorway in its north wall. All the carvings are badly weathered, but something is still visible.

There's a small chancel to the east, with a nice chancel arch to the nave. Only a small portion of the south wall of the chancel survives. The chancel houses some grave slabs and memorials.
The nave is long, with a low south wall and a full height west gable with a double bell-cot.

The place ceased to be used in the middle of the 16th century, during the dissolution of the monasteries.
There are interesting grave markers from the 18th century.

A sign warns visitor of the dangerous conditions of the building.
A cat was napping under a bush in the graveyard north of the church.
