The church seen from the southeast.


This church dates from the 12th century, but was modified in the 13th century and in the 15th century, when a massive tower was added to the church above the chancel. The room at the upper floor is reached by a long staircase.
Not far from the church is a truncated round tower. It has a square base, that is unusual and the only other kind of not round base is the round tower in Kinneigh.
Along with a holy well, these three monuments mark the monastic site dedicated to St. Brennain.
