St. Patrick’s Church – A History – Buy the Book

Published on January 18, 2019

Anybody with an interest in local history or who has a connection to Donaghmore parish will be very interested in a recently published book.

The Parish of Donaghmore has a long ecclesiastical history dating right back to St. Patrick who established the first church here in the fifth century.

The beautifully presented hardback gives a detailed history of St. Patrick’s Church and provides a huge amount of fascinating information about the church. The book covers parish life from the early days of St Patrick, right up to completion of the recent renovations in 2015.

With a limited edition of only 400 copies, this book is certain to become a collectable item. Priced at £30, all proceeds from the sale go directly to the church renovation fund.

This would be a particularly treasured gift for anybody living in the parish, and for those with family or ancestors from Donaghmore.

There are a limited number of books still available and are an excellent gift idea to a loved one at home or overseas for Easter.

Parishioner comments,
“excellent, readable and well-illustrated account of the evolution of the parish from its founding by St. Patrick to
the recent refurbishment of St. Patrick ‘s Church.”

“a treasured keepsake, every home should have one”
