Attanagh Village, Co. Laois Photographs

There I was sure that all my older gravestone photographs are online and a few minutes ago I saw some photographs of the church in Attanagh posted to the The Country Church page on Facebook, so off I go to link that page in to my Attanagh Church photographs AND no photographs online!!  My index to the names that I could read out in Attanagh is online, but not the photographs :(

My apologies to anyone with an interest in Attanagh and here are photographs of the village but not the gravestones.  They’re going to take little while to get online as very few could actually be read and I want to check through them again.

Before I post these, the thing about Attanagh is that it is on the very very edge of Co. Laois as you travel from Durrow to Ballyouskill.  It’s probably only 3 or 4 kilometres from Durrow, 5 mins drive away.

St. Audoen’s Church, Dublin City Photographs

St. Audoen’s church in Dublin is the parish Church of the Church Ireland parish of St. Audoen at Cornmarket in Dublin.  It is actually right beside Christchurch.

The church is named after St. Ouen (or Audoen) of Rouen (Normandy), a saint who lived in the seventh century and was dedicated to him by the Anglo-Normans, who arrived in Dublin after 1172. It was erected in 1190, possibly on the site of an older church dedicated to St. Columcille, dating to the seventh century. Shortly afterwards the nave was lengthened (but also made narrower) and a century later a chancel was added.

I put some photographs of our visit to this church on the from-ireland blog last June, you’ll see the link below this set of photographs.
