In the old graveyard there are the ruins of the Killahan church and the small shrine to Mary erected with the same masonry style as the church.


It's a very simple and plain old and ruined church, with no details of mention.
There are only the outer walls and a doorway in the south-southeast wall. The chancel is aligned to the east-northeast (75°).
The building is 19 metres long and 5.50 metres wide.
The only thing that we know is that it might be at least 700 years old, about 200 years older than the nearby Abbeydorney abbey whose later buildings date to the 15th century.
Amazing how the grid reference for this church is so round.

About 90 metres west-northwest (285°) from this church is the Killahan cross.
