  • St Mary's Collegiate church, Youghal.

    Hi all,
    In all my years going down to Youghal, I never knew this place existed until three days ago. This church/predecessors has stood since the 14th century and is open to the public. It's C of I/Anglican/Episcopalian and has a fascinating old graveyard as well as a large part of Youghal's city walls. Inside, it has many plaques to the dead of many wars, including one 19-year old 2nd Lieutenant who fell on the first day of the Somme (they even have his original grave marker). The grave yard is being stripped of years of undergrowth and new paths have ben laid, all by local volunteer labour. Well worth a visit.
    regards

      That's it. They make a great job of it during the harvest festival too.
      In times past, both RC and CofI celebrated together.

      However the vatican didn't like that kind of carry on...


      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

        Looks well worth a visit. The roof timbers in the nave are impressive. The stories a building like that could tell.

              That's it. You could easily spend a day there. I'd never seen the City Walls before. I'll definitely go back.

                  one interesting thing in the church is the guest book as you can see who signed the book one hundred years ago on another guest book...great spot...beware though the gates close at strict times and there is no way out...
