CHURCH OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL – A HUGE RED BRICK CHURCH
This church is located on Bird Avenue and I lasted visited it about ten years ago when I attended a funeral.
The Church of the Immaculate Virgin Mary of the Miraculous Medal was built in 1965 but it has an interesting history. Back in 1954, a competition was held to design a Catholic Church in Clonskeagh. It had to be large enough to accommodate 1,700 people, and cost no more than £150,000. More than a hundred submissions were received which was a record at the time. All shortlisted proposals were modernist designs but, mysteriously, the building that was eventually selected by Archbishop John Charles McQuaid was not one of them.
