Mortuary Chapel, Latlurcan Cemetery

Roman Catholic Church with adjoining graveyard

A symmetrical gable-fronted freestanding barn-style former Roman Catholic pro-cathedral, built 1790 (possibly retaining 1732 chapel), in the isolated valley outskirts of the town.

Built during the period of relaxed Penal Laws, the humble barn-type chapel reflects the caution of the Catholic community a decade after the Gordon Riot's in London and violence in Bath and Hull and thereabouts a decade before the aftermath of 1798. The earlier date attached to the structure reflects the community's longstanding connection to this site predating the first Catholic Relief Act of 1778, which freed clergy and educators from risk of prosecution.
