The ruins of the church seen from the northeast.


At Dromin there are the remains of a small church, probably built between the 15th and 16th century on the site of an earlier monastic site founded by St. Finian in the 6th century.
The church consists of a nave and a chancel divided by a chancel arch which has now been walled up. The east gable is partially missing, with traces of a splayed window. There's a pointed arch doorway in the north wall.
The north and west walls of the nave are missing.
In the southwest corner of the chancel, where the south wall meets the walled up chancel arch, there's a fine cusped ogee window.
