A small roofless oratory approx. 6.65 m x 3.91 m (Westropp), with gables and side walls intact. The lower walls contain large limestone blocks; the quoins are rounded at the angle and some have a slight arris roll. A number of heads and corbels are set into the walls. The original W doorway is blocked with rubble masonry, and a later medieval doorway is inserted into the N wall. Romanesque sculpture is found on the W doorway to the nave, in the E gable window, on a head set above the N doorway, and on various corbels. There is also a plain font. Near the oratory are two house-shaped shrines or tombs, constructed of stone slabs.
Founded by St. Cronan (of Roscrea or Tuamgraney?)
S jamb, W face: beast head in similar position at S side of jamb, but on a separate stone set outside the second jamb stone from top, and projecting more than the head on N jamb. The jaws are open to reveal tongue and teeth. The head has a flat top and appears to have been designed as a corbel.
A small plain round-headed light.
The window has a wide splayed reveal with inclined jambs topped by a lintel. The lower courses of the jambs have angle rolls and a vertical row of pellets on the W face (visible on S jamb, damaged on N jamb). The upper courses of the jambs, built of rubble, and the lintel are probably of later medieval date.
NE angle, at top: damaged corbel.
Above the later medieval doorway: human head, with traces of a curly beard. Probably not in its original location. The doorway has a pointed arch and probably dates from the 15thc.
Centre, at top: beast head corbel, with flat top and bulging eyes under arched eyebrows.
SW angle, at top: corbel with hollow chamfered underside, with an inverted dog-like mask in low relief. The sculpture appears to be unfinished.
NW angle, at top: damaged corbel with plain, hollow-chamfered underside.
