A beautiful church in a lovely location, this being my second time to visit this church and both time's for a sad occasion for our visit, for a relation's funeral. The priest gave a moving service in this lovely church.

The church itself was closed but it is possible to visit the burial grounds around the church. There are lots of interesting gravestones, vaults and some spectacular trees. Well worth visiting.

This place of worship is so well preserved after 800 years that it looks like a movie set. Some really interesting features such as only one of three St Nicholas windows in Ireland. And only one of two bent aisles in Northern Ireland.

Good looking church perched on top of a small hill and with a surrounding graveyard. Was shut when we visited and couldn't find anything about opening around the site
