St Michan's Catholic Church, Halston Street



 St Michan's Catholic Church was founded as a parochial chapel in the 1700’s. The features of the church remain relatively unchanged since construction with the exception of the work completed on the Sanctuary following Vatican II. There are side altars to the Sacred Heart and to the Blessed Virgin.
The stained glass windows are fine examples of the art of stained glass depicting the Mysteries of the Rosary and the Seven Sacraments.

And what about the mummified bodies in the crypt? That's the main attraction of the church, is it not? I also thought it was older than it was, so maybe I've got it wrong...

There are two St Michan's Marie, the one you are thinking of is nearby and belongs to the Church of Ireland. The St Michan's in my photos is the Catholic one and is referred to locally just as "Halston Street". Still - Saint Michan must have been a good man as he is obviously loved by all denominations lol
