St Patrick

Clonfeacle parish church, a Grade A listed building was established in 1618 as a plantation church.

About this church

Clonfeacle is an ancient parish dating back to the time of St Patrick in the 6th century. Our present building was designed and built by Sir Richard Wingfield in 1618 replacing the old run down church in the townland of Clonfeacle.

In 2018 we celebrated our 400th Anniversary. St Patrick's church is one of the oldest, unchanged buildings in regular use in Ireland.

We are fortunate to have 5 wonderful stained glass windows painted by CA Kempe. These windows are unique and irreplacable.
