Inscription.  

The Church of St. Mary's - a living centre of worship today - is also a monument to the Fitzgerald family whose history is permanently linked with the nearby Geraldine Castle. Originally built as a private chapel for the castle, in 1248 St. Mary's was made a Prebend of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin.

The back end of the churchyard represents the last fragments of the medieval curtain wall of the castle keep. The 15th century tower is a mausoleum for the third Duke and Duchess of Leinster and their relatives.
