The former church was thatched and the site was near the parish priest's house. This church faced Chapel Lane.

Westropp lists a church destroyed in war in 1302. A church in Newcastlewest was dedicated to St. David, March 1, 1410. Two churches, one from the late 17th century, were located at Churchtown. O'Donovan said that the church dated from 1690. By 1840 this church was in ruins. It had a small round-headed belfry on top of the western gable. The Church of Ireland church was on the site of the other church, off the square.
