About Church of Saint Michael

Church of Saint Michael in Corcaghan, Co. Monaghan.

Church of Saint Michael

Roman Catholic Church with adjoining graveyard

A symmetrical freestanding gable-fronted barn-style rendered Roman Catholic church, built or substantially remodelled 1842 after Catholic Emancipation but retaining spatial arrangements of earlier chapel, dated 1806. Despite internal reordering and loss of original detail, the chapel retains fine external date plaque features, Sheridan Foundry-cast bell, and inserted and artificially lit stained glass window in the style of Mayers of Munich. The date set into the principal rendered gable of 1842 and the one cast on its bell of 1868 may explain the bellcote's distinct and more refined masonry appearance.
