The Church of All Saints is located in Newtowncunningham in county Donegal. This beautifully designed Catholic church was built in 1999 at a cost of €1.2 million. The design is based on St.Peter’s fishing boat (or barque) as it was a powerful symbol of the early Christian church. It was built using local stone and features stained glass and murals by local artists. The village of Newtowncunningham takes its name from John Cunningham, originally from Kilbirnie, Ayrshire, in Scotland, who was among the settlers granted lands in Donegal during the Plantation of Ulster. Other notable building in the village are ‘The Manse’ and ‘The Castle’ which are stately Anglo-Irish “Big Houses” from the 18th century which reflect it’s colonial and Presbyterian history.
