ST LAURENCE O'TOOLE CHURCHKILMANCUD AND STILLORGAN AUGUST 2022

I lived in Stillorgan in 1964 when the Parish of St. Laurence O’Toole, Kilmacud, was formed. The Parish was made up of Kilmacud and Stillorgan. The first Parish Priest was Canon Harley. Until then our local church was Mount Merrion.

I have always found this difficult to photograph because of its location [height above road, angle of view, facing onto a main road from on high]. Today the Sony 90mm Macro lens produced better images than any of my other lenses have produced to date.

With the building of a large number of houses in Killester, in the 1920s, a church became necessary for the spiritual needs of the new community.

The church was consecrated by the Archbishop of Dublin, Dr. Edward Byrne, on the 26th September 1926.

With the large growth of housing developments in the 1940’s and 1950’s it became necessary to increase the length of the church .

In the Centre of Raheny village stands a tall Celtic stone cross with the inscription "Heal the sick, say unto them the Kingdom of God is come unto you. Marie Elizabeth Hayes, doctor and missionary." Marie Elizabeth Hayes was born in Raheny in 1874. She worked as a doctor and missionary in India but she died after a patient with the pneumonic plague bit her on the finger.

It lies in walled grounds with mature tree cover, just south of the village core, and is widely hailed as a fine architectural specimen.

On arrival I was surprised to see the following notice: "all kerbing, temporary or permanent is prohibited by order". It caught my attention because I did not understand what the word "kerbing" means in the context of a churchyard or graveyard. [Note: if you examine my images you will see many examples of kerbing]
ALL KERBING PROHIBITED BY ORDER
