The tower was built around the 10th century as a bell-tower for protection from raiders and is known locally as The Steeple. It is 28m tall and is one of the finest of its kind in Ireland. The Annals report that the site was destroyed in 1018 and finally burned in 1147. There is an unusual cross carved stone above the lintel and also eight simple, flat headed windows.
A large boulder known as the Witch's Stone, with two sizable bullauns, lies approximately 6m from the tower, slightly to the left front of the doorway
