Church of Saint Muadain

Church of Ireland Church with adjoining graveyard

A fine late Board of First Fruits church, built 1834 probably to designs by diocesan architect William Farrell of Dublin (d.1851).

Despite elegant entrance gates at a crossroads, the church is secluded and visible only at end of access avenue. Particularly interesting features include its elegant and delicate Gothic Y-tracery windows with elongated quatrefoils within the spandrel, and the highly styled pinnacled only applied to the gable front. Its plan and detailing, including its highly unique style of its pinnacles and bellcote is very similar to a contemporary Ulster Church of Ireland church in Cushendall, Co Antrim, also likely designed by Farrell. Similar but not identical windows to the shared motif of Y-tracery with elongated quatrefoils at Ballinode St Dympna and Cahans Presbyterian Church.
