Cill Éinde – Spiddal

Cill Éinde is a fine example of a freestanding Roman Catholic Church which dates to 1904. The eclectic style of this church, with its Romanesque revival elements, is attributed to W. A. Scott, one of the leading Arts and Crafts designers of his generation. It has a five-bay nave, chancelwith apse, single-bay transepts and a four-stage tower. On approaching Spiddal the fine tower of Cill Éinde is a striking feature of the village. It also boast a gable-fronted porch to north elevation. There are some fine examples of lead-lined stained-glass windows to be seen throughout the church. The south transept has two arches with octagonal columns and carved timber organ gallery on the upper level from which musicians can play music for any kind of church ceremonies including weddings. The church can hold a decent congregation of roughly 300 people.
