The lower stage has chamferedquoins and large recessed arched doorway on ground floor approached by a flight of semi-circular stone steps and a round window above the doorway. Flanking the tower are one storey sections with window on outer face and parapet on W. side swept up to tower with pineapple on outer corner. The nave is pedimented at E. end with bull's eye window in tympanum and has three tall arched windows on N. and S. sides. The apse, added in 1862, is of similar materials and has three similar windows. The interior has elaborate plaster decoration, a panelled dado and pews, the floor of the nave has a diagonal pattern of white stone and black tiles. The contemporary pulpit on the S. side of the nave has been slightly altered and the reading desk is supported on an elaborate panel of wrought iron. The organ case is probably contemporary. The font consists of a bowl of white marble carved with cherubs heads, and drapery standing on a green Irish marble baluster and an ogee shaped wooden cover carved with swags of fruit and flowers with a vase finial.
