Father O'Laverty's Description 1878

In the year 1810 Father James McMullan erected a little chapel in Feystown, in the townland of Clady. Father James O'Neill, in 1827, obtained, at the nominal rent of 6d per annum, from Edmond McDonnell, Esq., and his wife, the Countess of Antrim, a lease of a plot of ground, containing 1a, 2r. 29p. in Glenarm, Old Park [Deer Park Farms Townland], for the purpose of erecting on it a church, school-house, and forming in it a graveyard, and for other purposes. The church was dedicated, in 1828, by Dr. Crolly, under the invocation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The new church, commonly called that of Feystown, is about a quarter of a mile west of the old chapel, which, after the erection of the church, was allowed to moulder to ruin. The church was improved by Father Starkey, but it was completely rearranged by Father Delahunty.[4]
