Notes from Laois Archeological Survey:
OS 19:2:3 (387,542) ‘Oughaval Church (in Ruins)’ OD 300-400 25820,19566
Church: St. Coleman founded a monastery here in the sixth century. The later medieval church constructed of roughly coursed limestone was subsequently greatly modified by the Cosbys who built their family burial vault within the nave (o’hanlon and O’Leary 1907, vol. 1, 324-6). As a result, the ground floor level of the chancel (L.c.10.45m, Wth 9.15m) is now higher than that of the nave (L. c. 17.4m, Wth. 6.75m., wall T.c. 1.9m). a three light window, with later nineteenth century insertions, survives in E wall of chancel. Evidence of drafting is visible on three windows in N and S walls. Over the chancel lies a barrel-vault and loft with a possible wall walk on N and S walls. A two storey square tower projects from NW angle of nave. Within nave, a nineteenth century doorway leads to the Cosby vault. The circular encloseure defining the graveyard was removed by the Poor Law Guardians and replaced by a modern square one (ibid.), 19:3 (01), 2-5-1990
