CHURCHES AND GRAVEYARDS IN LIMERICK CITY

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC BURIAL GROUND OF THE CLANCY FAMILY

This is strange as one would be surprised to see Roman Catholics buried within the grounds of a Church Of Ireland Cathedral. All those buried in the grave between 1729 and 2015 bear the family name including women who married into the family but excluding daughters who married out of the family.

My understanding is that the Clancys were Abbey Fishermen. The Abbey Fishermen were so called as almost all of the fisher families lived in the St. Francis Abbey area of Limerick city. This area was once inhabited by Franciscan monks.

CLANCY FAMILY BURIAL GROUND
St John’s Church of Ireland church stands on the site of an earlier church, which dated from the 1200s. The walls around the graveyard were built in 1693 and the present church was built between 1843 and 1852. The church fell into disuse in the early 1970s and was handed over to the Limerick Corporation in 1975. The church was designed by Irish architect Joseph Welland(6 May 1798 - 6 March 1860)

When I arrived in Limerick the forecast was for rain within an hour so I rushed to the Cathedral in order to photograph it before the weather changed for the worse. There was no rain and the weather was beautiful for the rest of my visit

This Gothic Revival style church retains a strong sense of its original formal design. The imposing and dramatic church, located at a busy junction near to Limerick City, dominates the streetscape illustrating the church's position within the community. The building exhibits architectural and artistic merit in the stone carving and details as well as the stained glass windows. The church is dedicated to Saint Nessan. It was built for Fr. Jeremiah Halpin, and completed for Fr. Michael Casey.

The Redemptorist Church at Mount St. Alphonsus, South Circular Road, Limerick is more than 150 years old. It is open twelve hours every day so it is more accessible than most churches in Ireland and it is well worth a visit and if you do visit you will have plenty of time to view it.
CHURCH AT MOUNT ST. ALPHONSUS
On the right of the door of the church, there is a Mission Cross donated by the Drapers Assistants in memory of the Mission to Men. This mission was preached in the church in January 1868. Above the door of the church there is a statue of Our Lord surrounded by angels. On the gable wall of the monastery, there is a statue of St Patrick, which was sculpted by Patrick Pearse's father.”

This is a 1954 Marian Statue erected by the locals, across the road from Our Lady Queen Of Peace church, and it may be of better quality than most and as you can see from my photographs it is very well maintained.
