Roundstone “Our Lady Star of the Sea Church”
The foundation Stone was laid in 1932 and eventually was consecrated in 1872. Records show that the first marriage took place in December 1872 and the first Baptism also took place in December 1872
In between the years 1832 – 1872 a Franciscan Monastery was founded, but was demolished in 1968?, all that rests to this day on the site is the original Tower; this monastery, from the site, a private house was converted into a chapel which gave a place of worship for the Catholic Community. In 1830 another church was built, extended in 1890, known as Saint Mary’s for church of Ireland worshipers which is still in use to this day.
The Presbyterians were also given land by John Nimmo 1833, (brother to Alexander Nimmo) to build a church (the Kirk) with the foundation stone laid by Mrs Martin of Ballinahinch in 1840 but was demolished in 1930. The sight is still visual with various grave stones from bygone years.
