Excellent time for a new church, just as the lads were coming home after the war. Was that green colour from the original 1919 front of the Church? If not, was green chosen for any symbolic reason?
Those are green tiles so I would say they are part of the original church. I can't find any information about this one because surprisingly it isn't even heritage listed.
Not what I call a pretty chruch, very minamalist
I like its style.
I like how the cross design is worked into the window frames. The green framing is quite striking.
Looks like a place where hearts are happy.
Wonderful shot of the church.
Welcome to Jim in the New Year!I love churches built of brick. Aquamarine architecture adds to the charm.Happy New Year, JIM!!!!Lucja
Very different style with those green tiles. Great shot, Jim. I always enjoy your photos. Greetings Jo
A solid building.
Lovely sturdy church. I imagine soldiers coming home from the war found solace in this building. Cheers and have a lovely day.
That's what I'd call a towering edifice!
It certainly looks sturdy!
Built 1954 for 60,000 pounds - not inter-war, but the styling certainly looks like it.
Update - Foundation stone for a new church was laid by Cardinal Gilroy when he blessed and opened a new presbytery on 4Apr 1954 (to cost £50,000 - £60,000). The church was officially blessed and opened 6th October 1957 Fr Maurice McCarthy was the Parish Priest.
