For 5th Sunday services, Easter, Christmas and month of August contact the Rector

Abbeyleix, notable for the quality of its preserved historical buildings, was founded as an estate town by Viscount de Vesci. The house of the de Vesci family and the Church of Ireland Church were built by James Wyatt, and the estate workers were housed in some of the finest 19th century houses in the county. The old Patrician boys’ primary school has recently been converted into a heritage centre.

In Ballinakill you can see the ruins of a castle built by the Dunnes in the 17th century, but never inhabited. The entrance to the town is marked by two Toll trees, where a toll was paid by visitors who came to the town.

Durrow, an old Norman town was made part of Kilkenny by the Ormonds, but was restored to Laois in 1846. It has one of the last large pre-Palladian houses to be built in Ireland.
