In the early years of the nineteenth century, Fr James Slattery, the then parish priest of Ardmayle-Ballysheehan, along with his people, had the hope, courage and vision to build a new church on a new site in a more public place to replace the old penal chapel, which was located back in the fields behind the existing church in Boherlahan. It was dedicated to SS Peter and Paul and remained the centre of worship for the local community until its restructuring in the early 1960s, when it was rededicated to the Immaculate Conception.
