St Patrick's Chapel, Donegal Town, on Canvas.

This is a shot I took of St.Patrick Chapel in my home town of Donegal Town.

This Catholic church is also known as the Church of the Four Masters. It was built in the 1930's, although the style appears much older. 

It is well-built using good quality granite from nearby Barnesmore with high-quality carved and crisp Mountcharles sandstone detailing throughout, particularly to the elaborate doorcases that are testament to the skill of the masons involved. This carefully cut and carved stone detailing is unusual in a twentieth-century building, even a high-status one such as a church. It was named in honour of the four monks (Michael O'Clery, Peregrine O'Clery, Peregrine Duigan and Fearfeasa O'Mulconry) from the Franciscan friary in Donegal Town that compiled the Annals of the Four Masters in the 1630s.
