This Gothic-style Catholic church was built by Reverend Jacob Gorman in 1824-7. The scale and the fine detailing throughout represents a quality rarely seen in churches predating Catholic Emancipation (1829), thereby indicating the religious tolerance in Kilkenny together with the relative prosperity of the local congregation: however, some supplementary ornamentation may have been introduced as part of improvement works carried out in the early twentieth century to designs prepared by William Henry Byrne (1844-1917).
