St. Patrick


St. Patrick's Church, Coleraine seen from Circular Road, with part of Anderson Park in the foreground.

A Church of Ireland building, this church opened its' doors in 1885. Over the centuries, a number of churches have been built at this particular place.

It is said that St. Patrick himself founded the first church which occupied the site.

Does every city in Ireland and NI have a St. Patrick's church? ;)

This one is lovely.

Wow, I enlarged the photo and the way the light comes through the patterns in the steeple -- absolutely amazing!

That is one gorgeous church! The steeple-tower is indeed amazing to look at! It's so intricate!

I found this blog quite by accident. And very happy it happened. I'll be taking a peak regularly to see what new pics you've posted. You can't be much of an eejit if you take such interesting photos. But then, I'm American - what do I know?!

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
