St. Bridget’s Church, Mount Bolus, Co. Offaly (King’s Co.)

St. Bridget’s Roman Catholic Church,
Parish of Kilcormac & Killoughey (Killoughy)
Mount Bolus,
Co. Offaly (King’s Co.)
Ireland.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837) tells us that Mount Bolus is part of the parish of “KILLAUGHEY, or KILLAGHY, a parish, in the barony of BALLYBOY, KING’S county, and province of LEINSTER, 2 ¾ miles (E.) from Ballyboy, on the road from Tullamore to Roscrea; containing 4019 inhabitants. ” 

Also that “In the Roman Catholic divisions it forms part of the union of Frankford, and has a chapel at Mount Bolus.”

The Church that I photographed is not the one mentioned in Lewis. Photographs were taken during 2013.
