St. Columb's Church

The only info I could find about the church is below courtesy of the Dictionary of Irish Architects webpage.
Early English. Nave & chancel with tower and spire. Consecrated, 7Jun 1858. Cost about £1,600; 'upwards of £1000 subscribed by Rev. S. Montogmery, rector, who also gave site, and his immediate relatives.

  5. I didn't know there was such a thing as the Church of Ireland, it that a denomination like the Presbyterians, Baptists or even the Church of England?? Love this old stone church, especially the steps leading to the gothic shaped doorway. Thanks for stopping by to visit and leave such a nice comment!

    1. The Church of Ireland are all around the country. I'm told that it's like the Episcopalian Churches.

  11. Apparently still in use and well cared for. No chance of a burned-out lawn in summer over your way, is there?
