Built in the late eighteenth century, this fine neo-Classical church is an important addition to the architectural heritage of the town and county. Built pre Catholic Emancipation, it is unusually for its location, scale and formality of design as Roman Catholic churches were usually small scale, simple in design and set on discrete sites. Set close to the Church of Ireland church, its siting suggests that a more liberal religious attitude was prevalent in this area at the time of construction. Its pedimented entrance front, round-headed openings, blind niches and fine reredos are among the many features which mark it out as well considered classically inspired building.
