Feature Sets

A small, ruined, two-cell (nave and chancel) church, located on the W shore of Ballymore Lough. The chancel has a narrow, deeply splayed, round-headed E window with an arcuated lintel. There are square recesses in N and S walls of the chancel. Large dressed stones survive on the SE and NE angles, and the lower courses of a W and a S doorway remain. Within the church are a number of fragments, most of which are set in concrete. Two of these bear sculpture


No reference in Gwynne and Hadcock.


Loose Sculpture


The interlaced stems and fluted leaves of fragment (ii) bear a general resemblance to the fourth order S capital of the chancel arch at Inishmaine and the exterior second order capital of the slype doorway at Cong Abbey
