The church was originally designed by a Swiss architect for a Wesleyan congregation as temporary structure in Northumbria and used by a mining community there. In 1887, the parish priest of Kilcomman in Co. Tipperary arranged to purchase the church for £440, had it dismantled, imported to Limerick and transported by the local farmers of Rearcross to its present location. The church is unusual with corrugated metal walls and roof, and a germanic tower and spire.
