St Patrick's Church of Ireland, Kildress
St Patrick's Church of Ireland, Kildress
It is located to the north of the Cookstown to Omagh Road and east of Kildress village.

It succeeds an early 17th century building on another site which was burned down in 1641. Restored in 1698, this edifice was erected in 1818 on the present elevated site donated by William Richardson of nearby Oaklands.

The large, three-bay, Gothic revival stone nave with its drip-stone topped diamond paned windows has a smaller, beautifully lit chancel.

At its west end is attached a string-coursed pinnacled tower with small crenellations. The entrance is in its south wall. Attached to the north side of the chancel is a lean-to vestry. Near the church's south-east corner is a fine late 20th century parish hall.
