On Sunday 12th of February we were joined at service by Diana Menzies who travelled from Scotland to be with us. Diana is the granddaughter of The Rev. William A. Weatherhall ( 1872-1956 ) who was minister of this church from 1913 until his retirement in 1954. Diana was joined by her own granddaughter Danni Menzies whom you may recognise as the presenter of the Channel 4 show; ” A Place in the Sun”.

Kylemore was built by Mitchell Henry, a Unitarian and the Gothic chapel was built by him as a memorial to his wife Margaret who died at the age of 45. The abbey was purchased by the Benedictine nuns in 1920 and is now one of Irelands most treasured tourist attractions as well as being home to a community of contemplative sisters.
