Located in Clonmellon, County Westmeath, Saint John’s The Baptist Church is a detached three bay Church of Ireland church with attached two-stage tower on square plan to east with crenellated parapet and clasping corner buttresses.
Built in 1790 and remodelled in 1820. Pointed-arch window openings to the south side of nave with Y-tracery and latticed glass, no openings to the north of the nave. Triple light window with intersecting tracery and latticed glass to chancel gable pointed arched windows either side of the tower entrance at front.

Works included: new roof on the main, roof re-plaster internally and externally in lime render, re-placement of all the arched windows with leaded glass, re-pointing of the main tower with new louvered windows and installing the spire on top together with a bell. Major landscaping works with a beautiful band stand as a centre piece. A truly wonderful gem restored by the owners of Killua Castle.
