SMR No.: WI023-003001-
Monument Type: Church
Situated on level ground overlooking the valley of the Glenealo River to the S and the Lower Lake to the SW. 'Our Lady's' or 'St Mary's' church, which has been partly restored, is located within a square enclosure on raised level ground W of the main graveyard (WI023-028005-). It may have been built for use by women or nuns although there is no evidence to prove this. It was originally a single-celled structure but a chancel and a N door were added in the 12th century. The lower coursing is of large blocks of mica schist and granite. The W door has inclined jambs and is lintelled, with an early form of architrave on the exterior and an incised saltire cross on the soffit. The nave is lit by a round-headed window in the S wall with a small hood-moulding while a similar window in the E gable has hood-moulding decorated with a key pattern, terminating in worn animal heads. There are two decorated cross-slabs in the chancel and a number of rude crosses and cross-slabs in the graveyard.
