Heading for the King Of Kerry on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 we made a stop to explore a bit of Cahersiveen and to see this church. Itis huge. We walked the grounds and then went inside. Beautiful architecture and lovely stained glass windows.

Daniel O'Connell Memorial Church is in the centre of Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry. It is one of the few catholic churches in the world dedicated to a layperson. The construction is interesting in that the granite comes from Northern Ireland & the marble slab / cornerstone was sourced from the catacombs in Rome. His birthplace, Carahan, can be found just outside Cahersiveen to the left of the bridge entering the town from Killarney.

This is a wonderful place to visit, it is a beautiful and ornate. There is daily Mass and it was lovely to hear some parts of the prayers said in Irish Gaelic. There is a very friendly and helpful lady in the visitors centre/piety stall. Daniel O'Connell was a political leader and liberator of Ireland, the church is named after him. It is rare for a church to be named after someone who is not a saint. Monsignor Hugh O’ Flaherty is buried in the grounds of this church, he was a flamboyant character and Vatican diplomat who helped secure the lives of many during World War II. The church is just 5 minutes walk from where the bus drops you off in the town centre. Cahersiveen is a very friendly town with nice cafes, shops and history. At the end of July/ beginning of August there is a town festival which is nice and lively. They call this town the gateway to the Skelligs (islands off the coast of Kerry) and the Ring of Kerry so if you like scenery this is the place to start.

A relatively modern church (late 19th and early 20th century) and was named after the cleric who was instrumental in its construction after his death. It has an interesting graveyard with the graves of a number of the Presentation sisters as well local clerical luminaries.

This is a beautiful old church named in memory of Daniel O’Connell who championed Ireland’s freedom.
The cemetery was small but interesting also.

Entrance is through the side which is unusual for Catholic Churches.
There is a plaque dated 1st January 1884
approving the building by Pope Leo XIII (see photo)
Interesting interior, nice features.

'Wow', the modern architecture, a restoration of what now is an amazing church and so suitable in its charitable status, a humble place of worship and tranquil ambience.
Originally a 19th century small church, the local community and religious leader, namely Rev Timothy Brosnan, an admirer of the Irish liberator Daniel O'Connell sought backing from the Pope to build a suitable memorial church.
The only church in Ireland dedicated to a layman, we received a very friendly welcome and information freely forthcoming on the history and restoration programme.
Suitable tribute to Daniel O'Connell and also Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, an amazing human with an amazing story.
Beautiful church and an honour to visit, part of our trip on the Ring of Kerry on the most beautiful day.

It is quite a domineer building in the centre of the town . The architecture outside is brilliant and photogenic. But then you go inside and it is dull,grey colourless and lacks any character at all

But the outside is great
