Inscription.  

This Large East Window is unusual because it is made of wood and set in stone. During the restoration of 1770 this window was taken from the church of Laraghbryan, which had fallen into ruins[.] Note how the stonemason corrected the misspelling in the word "Parishioners" on the plaque underneath the window. The area round the north side of the Church, behind the Vestry was the location of the Schoolhouse between 1770 and 1859. The Geraldine Hall near the Royal Canal became the new school premises. This school closed in 1935.
