Situated on the crest of a low hill running north to south and overlooking the river Arglo to the west, the icy clad ruined church was the centre of worship for the people of Ballysheehan parish during medieval times. The church was dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. The tower house attached to the western gable was the residence of the local priest. The local Catholic community have used the surrounding grounds as a place of burial for centuries.
