The original church was built in 1178 and named after the daughter of the King of Mercia. An act of 1715 which passed through the Irish Parliament appointed commissioners for building a new church. In 1719 the church was sufficiently built to permit worship to be carried out but the tower was left unfinished, without either spire or dome.
