The Two Churches
The parish of Dunhill and Fenor has two churches. Remarkably, one is situated in the village of Dunhill and the other in the village of Fenor!! Click HERE to view the Parish Map. The map will show you that we are telling the truth. Why would we lie?
The Sacred Heart church (right) is in Dunhill and the church of the Immaculate Conception (left) is in Fenor. These two churches are not cathedrals or basilicas but, rather, simple country churches. However, they are well constructed with some interesting architectural features and, inside, are warm and welcoming. Most of all, they are our churches and have been for over a hundred years. They were built with the money collected from parishioners, our ancestors, who were not millionaires. Our first task was to bring to you the stained glass windows of the two churches in all their amazing colour and detail. We have attempted to explain the significance of each window and the meaning of the religious symbols shown in them. We have also shown you the Stations of the Cross as you have never seen them before, and we have produced two brochures which give additional information about the churches – you can access the brochures below.
