The second church in the parish is in Ballingaddy. This
church was built in 1838. At the centenary of the church in 1938 an inscription
to Mary was placed on the floor to commemorate the event. The inscription
reads "MARIA: Sub tuo praesidio 1838-1938" which means 'Under
your protection, O Mary'.
The church is dedicated to St. Mary and Mr. C. Sanders gave
the site for the church. Inside the door of the church there is a list
of the donors who donated various items to the church when it was it built.
Mrs. Peg Watt gave the stained glass window of the Assumption of Our Lady.
