Aughrim RC Church

The following photos were taken in April 1995 when I was invited to Ireland by a now deceased cousin. It was a two week trip; two days in Dublin and rest in County Roscommon. While there; many genealogy adventures were on hand. I visited with numerous cousins, located long lost cousins, and made various stops at Irish churches and graveyards.

Below are photos of the Aughrim Roman Catholic church where some of my ancestors worshipped. According to FindAGrave, The first Aughrim church was built in 1790 and was referred to as "Rodeen Chapel"and was replaced by the present church in 1907.
