The poor ruins of this church are within a stone enclosure.


Of this church almost mothing survives, apart from the east gable with its nice three-light pointed arch window and a short segment of the north wall. A more recent boundary wall has been built all around the small graveyard.
Next to the east window is a table tomb of the Devereaux family with a slab lying on four short pillars.
It seems that the church was built on a crypt which still has a passage to the south. There are other few altar or table tombs around the ruins and dozens of unmarked burials.
Unfortunately there are no details or information about this old church probably dating from the 15th century.
