Prior to the construction of this fine Gothic church, there was an earlier Georgian church constructed with the development of Newtown Pery (the Georgian area of Limerick). Built on Pery Square, its immediate neighbour is the excellent Georgian terrace also by James Pain. Originally built in the 1840s without its intended spire, it was redeveloped in the 1870s when William and Robert Fogerty heightened the tower, added a chancel and remodelled the interior.
