A panorama of Drumoghill with the chapel in the distance and a flax mill to the foreground and to the far left, a flax mill.

In the back to the direct left of the chapel you can just make out the old Drumoghill School building almost hugging the chapel.

The house to left fore of the Chapel is the old parochial house and has now been demolished.

The field down opposite  the gate entrance is where the present Drumoghill School has been built.

The shed (house coal and turf) to the right of the gate is gone and the bell is now located there.
