i know it probably sounds silly but i have often wondered did people object to the building of huge churches too? some of our churches are a massive height. i wonder what our ancestors thought about say the maynooth college spire when that went up? i am not insulting churches mind as i do respect them. it is just a thought.

Another interesting question.

Perhaps people weren’t too bothered about it’s height or what it looked like. The standard of architecture back then was very high, IMO. Perhaps the main concern was if it was a Protestant church or Catholic.

Of course, I haven’t a clue what I’m talking about. I’d be interested in a proper answer though.
