1881 – Donore Presbyterian Church, South Circular Road, Dublin

Architect: William Stirling


Presbyterian church and manse constructed for a congregation of around 500. The spire was never proceeded with. As the congregation dwindled, it was eventually sold in 1983 and is now a mosque. A war memorial from the First World War was moved with the congregation to the Adelaide Road Presbyterian Church.


“A new Presbyterian church at Donore, South Circular-road, was opened on Friday last. It has been designed to accommodate 500 persons. Besides a manse now in course of erection, sundry additions to the church are in contemplation, to be carried out when funds come in. Mr. William Stirling is the architect, and the Messrs. J. and W. Beckett, builders.” Published in The Irish Builder, August 1 1881.
