Mansfieldstown Church

Map Reference: O022953 (3022, 2953)

Mansfieldstown Old Church, in Bawn townland, probably dates from the 15th or 16th century. There were many alterations and additions made in the 19th century. It is an undivided nave-and chancel church with a bell-cote at the west end. Parts of the traceried east window dates from the earliest phase. It has two stone masks as label-stops with a third mask at the apex. These are all of late medieval date. The tracery of the north and south windows is 19th century but the label-stop masks are probably 16th century. The memorials in the graveyard are mainly 19th century with a small number from the 18th century.
