Mass is sometimes said in the oratory, located on Nora Hawkes property.
The previous owner, Martin Haverty, built the oratory in 1854, with permission
from the Bishop, to commemorate the Immaculate Conception of Our Blessed
Lady being made into an article of faith. To the right hand side of the
oratory is a cross, also erected by Martin Haverty in 1854.

John Hogan, a sculptor, made the trial cast of the Dead
Christ, which is in the altar of the oratory. The full size version
of this sculpture is in St Theresa's church, off Grafton Street in Dublin.
