Ballylanders Church was originally intended to be a castle. The magnificent tower, the walls of which are still in good condition, had already been built but the Earls of Kingston, who donated funds for its building, ran into difficulty due to the cost of building their castle in Mitchelstown. So a wing was added to the tower and the building was then turned into a protestant church in 1870.

Ballylanders Church has some nice architectural features including crests of the Earls of Kingston. A stone carving above the entrance reads 'Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will towards men' (see picture 20). This beautiful local landmark currently lies derelict in this Co. Limerick village.
