The remnants of two or possibly three ruined churches survive within the local graveyard. No Romanesque sculpture survives on site, but recorded drawings indicate that there were Romanesque fragments here formerly.
Kilbarry was the site of an early Christian monastery, said to have been founded by St Berach in 615.
The antiquarian, Daniel Grose, illustrated a rectangular block of stone with Romanesque carving on one face. In his drawing two lines of vertical beading frame an Irish-Urnes design, with two interlacing beasts entwined in figure of eight scrolls. The current whereabouts of this stone is not known. While it might have come from a freestanding cross, it is more likely to have been a piece of architectural sculpture.
