The other church in the parish is at Martinstown, which is also dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption. The plaque over the church door dates the church as 1834. The church was built under the leadership of Jacob Walsh and was opened by Bishop Ryan. The church was renovated a number of years ago when the gallery was removed.

Mr and Mrs James McCormack from Ballinvana donated the Stations of the Cross in 1939. There is also a plaque asking people to pray for Padraig Mac Flanncada and Liam Ó Slatarra, who died in the War of Independence. Another plaque was given by the Oblate Fathers in 1891. The stained glass windows at the back of the church were given by Fr Mark Crowley P.P. of Middlesborough, Yorkshire in 1991. His parents were natives of the parish.

Buried in the church is:

  Richard Nunan, P.P. 1858-1862, Died May 17 1862, aged 46
