Not much to say, but just a nice old church with the typical huge stained glass windows. Definitely not a tourist attraction, but worth stopping in for when out and about in Kilrush.

This is a classically ornate church. It seems to take its style from the great Augustus Pugin. Even a casual glance is a feast for the eyes - mosaics of people and animals. A beautifully decorated wooden main ceiling. Stained glass of St.Senan, St.Bridgid and St.Patrick and others in an iconic and wonderful style. (I found out this was made... More

The large photo is of St. Senan's church Monmore, a very small church 3 miles from Kilrush. It is not St. Senan's Church, Kilrush, Co. Clare - which is the church reviewed here.
