Church of the Sacred Heart

Roman Catholic Church with adjoining graveyard

A symmetrical freestanding double-height stone Roman Catholic church with Gothic Revival detailing, built 1823 and enlarged 1885-1888 into a cruciform plan to designs by the prominent William Hague Jr. (1840-1899), native of County Cavan. The chancel and porch fine masonry walling likely indicates Hague's new 1880s work, which externally must have been completed by 1886, and internal remodelling ongoing until 1888 (perhaps the date of the stained glass). Associations with Hague are important, as he was then engaged with a number of projects in the region, including completing St. Macartan's Cathedral, Monaghan.
