The church was built in 1836 on the instructions of Fr. Nicholas O’ Connor.  The Heath Church is part of the parish of Portlaoise.  The tabernacle and the large silver cross came from the old St. Peter and Paul’s church in Portlaoise.

It sits on the edge of the Heath, unobtrusive, tucked away.  It does not scream for attention.  It seems to just sit there at the foot of the hills, waiting for the people of the parish to travel to it, knowing they will arrive.
