The ruins of the church on the north slope of Bray Head.


Behind the town of Bray there's a hill called Bray Head. On the north slope of this hill there are the ruins of a church built in the 12th or 13th century. The name Raheen na Clig may means "the little church of the bell" or "little fort of the stones".
The building measures 12.50 metres in length and 5.30 metres in width, with the east end facing to east-southeast (105°).
The church still retains the west and east gables with a small and narrow window on each side. The entrance doorway to the north is almost gone.
Unfortunately some stupid idiots have defaced the inner wall of the west gable with a graffiti in a red spray paint.
