A rebuilding of an earlier church from 1752. Described as a restoration at a cost of nearly £7,000, retaining only the nave walls of the original church. The earlier church was described in 1837 as “The church or chapel of St. Kevin is a plain edifice, in the form of the letter T, situated to the south of Kevin-street; it appears to have been erected on the site of an ancient chapel dedicated to St. Kevin.” At the time it was the largest Church of Ireland parish church in Dublin. It closed in 1950. The church was demolished in 1983.
