Re: Re: How well do you know Dublin?
Though that crop in Morlan’s most recent post reminds me of the church in Arbour Hill. But how can that be reflected in the window of a house?
You’re in the rightish area anyway.
Church of The Holy Family, Aughrim St. (St. Joseph’s Rd. above)
The foundation stone of the church was laid by Cardinal Cullen in April 1874 and the first Mass was celebrated on the 8th December 1876. At the time it was a Chapel of Ease to St. Paul’s, Arran Quay. On The 18th May 1893, Aughrim Street was constituted a parish by Most Rev. William Walsh, the then Archbishop of Dublin.
The Church built in the Gothic style is considered to be one of the finest in the Archdiocese; it has underegone a major refurbishment in the years 1997 to 2005.
