Our Lady of the Wayside Church is locally known as ‘The Blue Church’ after is Marian colour. It was built entirely out of timber in 1929 and is similar in style to churches found in America. It has a seating capacity for only 150 people and is one of the most popular choices as a Dublin wedding venue with more than 2,000 being recorded so far. One of the more famous weddings in recent years was golfer Padraig Harrington’s caddy who married the golfing star’s sister-in-law. Olympic gold medallist Ronnie Delaney is a regular mass goer here too. Our Lady of the Wayside is the patron saint of travelers and her feast day is celebrated on the 24th of May. Kilternan is also one of only a handful of villages in Ireland that doesn’t have a main street!
