The Adelaide Memorial Church in Myshall

The Church of Ireland Adelaide Memorial Church of Christ the Redeemer in Myshall is a miniature of Salisbury Cathedral. Completed in 1913, it was commissioned by a Dover-based businessman, John Duguid, in memory of his daughter Constance, who was killed in a horse riding accident while visiting her sister in Myshall, and her mother Adelaide, who died in 1903. Both are buried here.

Naomh Eoin GAA[edit]

Myshall is also home to Naomh Eoin GAA Club. Since its formation the club has won more county senior hurling championships than any other club, with 18 Titles. They are also the only Carlow team to have won a senior hurling and football double (in 1986) and an U-21 hurling and football double in 2010. They won their first Minor and U21 A Football County Titles in 2010. They added another U 21 Football title in 2011.
