A church has stood on the site of this church since the thirteenth century. The Abbey of the Augustinian Order was founded c.1290 it was the second of the Augustinian Monasteries established in Ireland. The surviving buildings, from this period, consist of the 13th century chancel and the 15th century tower. The ruin is known locally as the ‘clogchas’. After the suppression of the monasteries in the 16th century the friars were driven from the abbey and by 1654 the building was ruined and destroyed.
The present church is a plain rectangle in plan and was built in 1832-4, the chancel was repaired in 1923.
