The ruins from roughly the north.


There isn't much information about this old church.
The only surviving part of the religious building is the tower to the west (275°), the other wall are ruinous or missing some small sections. The large east window might have had a wonderful tracery.
The south wall might have had two doorways.

One of the most interesting details within these ruins is the memorial in the southeast corner with a lengthy and weathered Latin inscription. It was erected by Charles Eccles in memory of his father Gilbert Eccles of Shannock (co. Fermanagh) who died on August 6th, 1694, aged 92. There's the wonderful coat of arms of the Eccles family (of Scottish origin) with the motto "NEC DEFICIT ANIMUS", meaning "nor lacking the heart" and a skull and crossbones at the bottom.
