The sites of a church and graveyard in the townland are registered as Scheduled Historic Monuments at grid ref: D3440 1220 and an Early Christian cemetery was excavated in 1993. This revealed over 120 burials dated from the 7th to 12th centuries. Some burials had been disturbed by a stone-lined pit of Anglo-Norman date.
