St. Owen's Church of Ireland church in the small village of Ballymore was built around 1827. It is now out of use and roofless. The graveyard has several mainly 19th century graves. There is also the remains of a single-cell chapel on the site which is thought to date from c. 1625. This church is of historical interest as a reminder of the once thriving Church of Ireland community in this area.

The shape and size of St. Owen's Church are typical of the large number of churches built in Ireland between 1808 and 1830 with the assistance of loans and grants from the Board of First Fruits. The inside of the church is overgrown with ivy and other vegetation and the roof is long gone but it still sits proudly in the Westmeath countryside.
