Glantane R.C.Church is situated in the glen at the southern end of the village. It is a beautiful Gothic edifice which was completed in 1878 by the late Rev. Father Lynch P.P. who was afterwards appointed P.P. of Charleville where he died.
"The Topographical Dictionary of Ireland" by Samuel Lewis, which was published in 1837 says "The chapel of Glauntane was rebuilt in 1821".
According to that, the present church must be at least the third on the same site.
The church which was demolished in 1878 was T-shaped and some of the older people in the parish remember hearing Mass in it. While the new one was being built the villagers used to attend Mass in Kilpadder.
Beside the church is the Curate's residence which was built
