The Bay Church, Glenariffe
Locally published card by D.J.Dooey & Co., Wholesale Stationers of Ballymena.
Protestant Cathedral, Armagh
Emerald series card p.u. in 1906.
A view from the other side of the Cathedral drawn by artist Donald S Nelson and dated 1972.
St.Senan’s Roman Catholic Church, Kilkee, Co.Clare
An absolutely ghastly monstrosity consecrated in 1963 and which replaced an earlier church on the same site. According to the parish website the ‘design‘ was inspired by the Catholic cathedral of Coventry, England and built by a local building contractor. It shows on both counts! Seating for 1,100 worshippers.
Card by NPO Dexter.
St. Finn Barr’s Cathedral, Cork
A rather fine card of Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral by Raphael Tuck & Co.
Presbyterian Meeting House, Stranorlar
A fine pile which was completed in 1908 and which replaced a more modest thatched structure previously in use. Unknown publisher.

Mary Immaculate, Refuge of Sinners Church, Rathmines
A striking landmark on Lower Rathmines Road. More details here.
An early view by Milton.
The Pro-Cathedral, Marborough Street, Dublin
One of my least favourite churches – perhaps it’s the cramped location, perhaps it’s the crude design? Anyway here it is in all of its glory from the Wrench Series No.1972.

Cong Abbey, Co.Galway
Wrench series No.1956.
Ardfert Cathedral, Co.Kerry
A Valentines view of the cathedral.
RC Church, Desertmartin
The strangely named Desertmartin gets its name from the Irish Díseart Máirtín, meaning “hermitage of St. Martin”. I always wondered until tonight – Wiki is truly the fount of all knowledge!
An early card by Doo-Well Publishing Co., Ballymena – printed in Germany.
St.Mel’s Cathedral, Longford
Built between 1840/1856 St.Mel’s Cathedral served the RC community of Longford until it was completely gutted by fire in 2009. It has since been fully rebuilt and reopened for services in 2014.
Card is in the W&RS series published for Stoker, Longford.
St.Brendan’s R.C.Church, Birr, Co.Offaly
Nice Valentines view but why is there a man standing on the bridge parapet?
New Cathedral of Christ the King, Mullingar
No publisher given. The cathedral was built between 1933 and 1936 – further information here.
Kiltennell Church, Nr.Gorey
The church dates from 1770 and was built on the Earl of Courtown’s estate – the big house is gone – but the church remains in use.
Published locally by Leggett, Stationer. Gorey.
The Abbey, Ferns
Church of the Redeemer, Bray, Co.Wicklow
An early 20th century Valentine’s view of the RC Church on Bray Main Street. The present building looks nothing like the postcard as the front was completely remodelled in a modernist style in 1965 following a fire.
