    St Columba's Church

    by mvtouring Written Nov 16, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were looking for the cathedral, took a wrong turning and found this lovely church. sometimes one can be glad that you get lost, cause that is when you discover other fantastic things that you might have missed. The disestablishment of the Church of Ireland from 1871 by an Act of Parliament led that Church to sell many of its estates and bishops' palaces, in the process laying off many Protestant workers who themselves then moved away. However the wealthy protestant William Murphy donated land outside the town centre for the building of this quaint church.

    in Harmony row opposite the Rowan Tree hostal you will find this interesting sculpture, thanks to Paul (PFSMalo), I can now tell you that it is called Trinity and is by Diarmuld and Marcel Twohigh.It is in limestone and was completed in 1998. It represents 3 interlapping Celtic figures forming 3 arches for seating purposes.

    St. Columba's Church

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ancient Friary was adopted for use as a parish church (Church of Ireland) in 1615 for several united parishes, the ancient churches of these places being allowed to fall into ruin. The present church in Bindon Street (St. Columba's Church) was built on the Disestablishment of the Irish Church in 1896.

    Walking through Ennis, you will get to O'Connell square with the monument to Irish nationalist hero Daniel O'Connell which stands atop a tall column, the site of the old courthouse where he won the Clare by-elections in 1828. You will see this monument from quite a distance.

    River Fergus

    by mvtouring Written Nov 16, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The River Fergus flows through Ennis, and our hostel was right next to the river. From our balcony we could watch the water run underneath, wondering where it was running through en-route to its end destination.
