The tall and pointed spire and the flat ruins of the church seen from the southwest.


Of this Church of Ireland church only the steeple with its tall and pointed spire survives. This stands to the southwest (210°) side of the church.
The church building seems to have crumbled down or it has been demolished, all stones of the walls have been piled inside the remaining walls and are now completely covered with dirt and grass.
There was a pointed arch doorway between the steeple and the church, today only a segment of that arch is visible.
Another pointed arch doorway is in the southeast side of the tower, and the traces of a barrel vaulted ceiling are on the wall on this side of the tower, along with the trace of a gabled roof.
Inside the tower the dirt has piled up to the church's remaining walls level. There's a vaulted ceiling above in the tower, with a large hole in the middle now filled with what looks like straw.
