The ruins of the Glenogra church from the east.


An unplanned visit. We were adviced to visit this place by a local in Bruff. Not far from here is Glenogra Castle.

The ruins of the Glenogra Church show a long nave and chancel building and a lonely standing wall to the south of it. This must be the only survivor of a south transept. All traces of a north transept are vanished, but it's right to conclude that this might have been a church with two transepts.
The church was dedicated to St. Nicholas on December 10th, 1410.

The east wall has three windows. The west gable has a small window high in the wall and a doorway. The south and north walls have two wide arched passageways, and the south one is in axis with the lone wall.
The lone wall has a wide and large Gothic window, or more likely a doorway, since its splaying is at full height. A piscina is next to it.

The main building is aligned to the east (90°).
