Freshford was the site of a very early Christian church founded by Saint Lachtain in 622 and which was later replaced by a monastic church in 1100. The church of Ireland parish church in 1100. The church of Ireland parish church now incorporates the very fine and unusual Romanesque porch and doorway of this later church decorated with friezes and a figured panel. Little else remains of the original building except, a fine round window with Romanesque moulding, one of the very few in Ireland.
