The fortified church at Taghmon was built as a parish church around the middle of the 15th century. It is situated on the site of a late 6th century monastery founded by St Munna, aka St Fintan. The church is a single cell with a barrel vaulted roof. A delightful feature of the church is the battlements with Irish crenellations. Another unusual feature for a church is the machicolation built above the door in the south wall. The church and tower also have a pronounced base batter. It originally had four ogee headed windows with cut sandstone surrounds, divided between the north and south walls.
