Newton Roman Catholic Church, Co. Carlow

Roman Catholic Church,
Co. Carlow,

The script with the image of Our Lady on this Church says “I am the Immaculate Conception” so this church may be the Church of the Immaculate Conception. I’d appreciate it if anyone who sees these images and knows the name of the church would let me know. Thanks.

Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) tells us that “AGHA, or AUGHA, a parish, in the barony of IDRONE EAST, county of CARLOW, and province of LEINSTER, comprising part of the market and post-town of Leighlin-bridge, and containing 1739 inhabitants. This parish is situated on the east side of the river Barrow, which is navigable to Waterford, and on the road from Carlow to Kilkenny.”  Also “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions it is partly in the union or district of Dunleckney, and partly in that of Old Leighlin: the chapel, situated at Newtown, is a handsome edifice lately erected. “
