Eyrecourt is a very attractive village with some interesting architecture. The village has two nineteenth century churches, one Catholic and the other Church of Ireland. The Church of Ireland church has some very fine Mural plaques bearing the names ofthe Eyres, Pollocks and other local latter-day gentry. The church itself is an architectural gem and exhibits some interesting carved ornamentation. The Catholic Church has some fine stained glass windows, the work of John Early of Dublin. It also hasa Sanctuary Lamp donated by Count de Bastro, from Kinvara, a friend of Dick Martin and Lady Gregory. The large house, beside the Catholic Church now the home of the Clarke family, was formerly the presbytery.
