St Patrick’s Church Newport Co Mayo

St Patrick’s Church Newport Co Mayo

Newport has a very striking railway bridge (no longer used for rail carriage) like an aqueduct which is commonly referred to as “The Viaduct”, which, with the Roman Catholic church on top of the hill, dominate the town and create a picturesque appearance.

St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, built in 1914 in the Irish Romanesque style by Rudolph M. Butler is so imposing that it is usually referred to as ‘Newport Cathedral’.

It has a magnificent stained glass east window of The Last Judgement, the last window completed by Harry Clarke in 1930.

The Black Oak River flows through the centre of the town and there are pleasant walking paths along its grassy banks through the Seven Arches Bridge as seen in my photographs.

    Do you sell copies? Preferably high Res digital?
    I would like to get a print made of the St Patricks church behind the Viaduct in Newport.
    We live in the States now but my mother in law was from Newport and this would make an excellent gift.
