This is the beautiful St Patrick’s Parish Church located in Enniskerry village. It was built by Mervyn Wingfield, 7th Viscount Powerscourt in 1859 in response to the Protestant population of the village not having a local church. Before this they had to attend church on the grounds of the Powerscourt Estate. The church is surrounded by stunning scenery and Sugar Loaf mountain can be seen as it’s ‘back drop’. The grave of artist Paul Henry (1876-1958) lies in the graveyard. Henry is regarded as Ireland’s greatest landscape artist and is famous for his scenes depicting Connemara and the West of Ireland.

Curious Ireland images make interesting wall art, meaningful wedding presents or simply a thoughtful gift for someone who is living far away.……If you prefer COLOUR CLICK HERE or B&W CLICK HERE. (beautifully printed & packaged by the Irish Photo Archive)
