Love it or loathe it - the unique building of Monkstown Parish Church, dominating this small village in south Co. Dublin, was completed in 1831 by John Semple and Son, after years of changing sites, plans and personalities. The fascinating story of this well-known landmark is revealed in this new history, meticulously researched from the original sources. As well as a detailed guide to the church, its architecture, stained glass and organs, this is an account of its people, both saints and sinners, many of whom have left a remarkable legacy behind, extending far beyond Monkstown.
