Background & History

Designed by George Ashlin in 1875, this church was built to mark the centenary of Cahersiveen’s most celebrated son, Daniel O’Connel. This church is dedicated to a layperson. Its inception and construction was fraught with controversy. It is an interesting mixture of styles: predominately French Gothic, with medieval round turrets and steep conical caps.
