References to the town of Affane are limited to its inclusion on a list dated 1300 and an incident in 1312, but the presence of a church and castle 300m apart suggests the presence of a medieval settlement. The Battle of Affane between the Desmond and Ormonde clans was fought in the area in 1565.
The ruins of a Church of Ireland church are located within a graveyard. The parish church of Affane, listed as Athmethan and valued at over £6 in the ecclesiastical taxation (1302-1306) was located south of the ruins. By the mid 16th century it had been united with the church of Dungarvan, but in a visitation of 1588 it was in the Deanery of Ardmore.
