About Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul

Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Drumgoosat, Co. Monaghan.

Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul

Roman Catholic Church with adjoining graveyard

An example of an early nineteenth-century barn-type Roman Catholic Church, which despite recent alterations retains its early form and character. It is very simple in form, which is indicative of the lack of resources available to the Roman Catholic Church at the time. The freestanding cast-iron belfry serves as an interesting reminder of Penal restrictions when Nonconformist churches were not entitled to have a bell for worship. This simple structure remains an important historical document and an important part of the architectural and social heritage of Drumgoosat.
