We met Father Sean, and Frankie O'Shea a volunteer and communicated with Ciaran O'Connell who helped us search the parish records for our family members. Mary who works the Parish community desk is a real go getter and is very caring.

Went to see where ancestors attended and lit a candle for those no longer with us. The stonework angels, walls, windows and altar awe inspiring. Adjacent to the park and its beautiful rose garden.

Can't understand why this... More

My visit to the church, was to see where my fathers family grew up and it's a lovely old church with a school attached to it. Inside was lovely.

We went for a look around the church in the evening to light a few candles. It is a beautiful church and it was lovely that it was open for a look around.

I may be ever so slightly biased but I got married in this wonderful church. As soon as I stepped into the church on my previous visit 2 years before I knew this is where I wanted to be wed.

A great piece of Victorian architecture with some nice stained glass. A peaceful corner away from the bustling town centre.
