SUNDAY 15TH MAY

Seven Liberties Churches and a Drop of the Hard Stuff

 

12 PM

Booking Required

Join Noel Fleming and Kieran Doyle O’Brien from the Liberties Cultural Association on a walk through the heart of the Liberties. Along the way we’ll share stories about some of the iconic churches of this historic part of the city. Although many of them were founded in medieval times all, with one exception, were rebuilt in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

 

Our walk begins at the Pearse Lyons Distillery, former Saint James’s Church (Anglican). It’s one of the new distilleries in an area that was once home to the world’s largest whiskey and beer producers and because of that, was often referred to as ‘the Golden Triangle’.

 

We will be walking for a distance of about 1.6km on footpaths, crossing some busy streets and finishing in Saint Audoen’s Park. An additional tour of St Audoen's Church will be available after the walking tour.

 

We plan to go inside a couple of church buildings with wheelchair access. No dogs, please!
