Administrative Details:

In the Down Survey map (Record Office, Dublin) this is represented by a single townland which gives name to the parish. The two additional townlands therefore must have been formed out of the first within the past 250 years. The ruins of the ancient church are in an excellent state of preservation; they consist of nave and chancel connected by a pointed chancel arch of wrought red sandstone. The west doorway, also of red sandstone, and in harmony (architecturally) with the chancel arch is somewhat elaborately moulded. Within the nave is a rather remarkable holy water stoup or baptismal font.
