Rory had a quite a few homes in London. We could buy them too!! We lived in Maida Vale Paddington in London in the mid seventies. Not to far from Rory's London homes. Interesting. Maida Vale is a millionaires row now. Subrata.x ;)


Sarah and I saw that church, Saints Peter and Paul- it's stunning. There was a statue of Mary in the churchyard, so of course Sarah had to quip, "Look! It's Peter, Paul, and Mary!" Of course I had to groan. But in all fairness, she pointed out that she was not likely the first person to make that joke.

We went into St. Peter and Paul church when we visited Cork last June. It was right after I had learned my good friend Jim, whom I had met in person in Ballyshannon just a week before, was in surgery, so I lit the first of many candles for him in that very beautiful church.

Even my daughter who no longer attends went inside, it was so impressive. I did have to make her cover up her Marilyn Manson shirt so as to not shock and offend the little old Irish ladies who were reciting the Rosary up front, though. :lol: We walked up to the center under the dome, and looked up, it had the most beautiful mural of the night sky.

I don't think that was likely the church Rory and family attended though, simply because there is probably one closer and more conveniently located to where they lived.

Hi,
I would love to visit the church Rory and his family attended. I always visit the local church of wherever I go. I suppose there are many churches in Cork for me to visit. I'll just have to see where I am led. I thought about visiting the church where his funeral was held, but I'm not sure where that is. Isn't outside the city?

I'm so looking forward to my visit.

It is the Church of the Holy Descent, situated off Model Farm Road, Cork (which is on the route to St Oliver's, where Rory was laid to rest).

I know that was where the funeral mass for Rory was held, but which church was it that they attended when Rory used to escort Monica to mass when he was in town?

We have seen the Church of the Holy Descent on our way to see Rory in Ballincollig by bus and car. I have not been inside it yet. I also have not been inside Shandon Church either. There is a Butter Museum there. I walked up the steps of Shandon but it was shut. Man it was steep climbing that hill of Shandon Church. I heard about its bells. I live in a hilly area of London myself, so I am quite use to steep climbs. I loved sitting on St Patrick's Hill with Susie, and looking at the stunning view of Rory's hometown. Subrata.x

Growing up in the UK I love churches etc as this country is predominantly Christian. I am very familiar with Catholic churches because I went to a school run by Irish Catholic nuns and I went to a Catholic college after that. I loved my college years before going to University. Susie converted to Catholism in 2012 and we just loved the churches in Ireland. We visited this church outside Dublin after visiting the Angels of Ireland shop. For me God energy is everywhere and in everything. I love temples, mosques, synagogues, holy sites etc. Subrata.x

I am going to Penzance, Cornwall this year to see the magnificent St Michaels Mount. Its a very special place for me. I first went there in 1989. Anyway I found Penzance to be very similar to Cork. Susie said the same.The way the buildings followed the natural seaside hills of Penzance, is similar to that of Cork.Also the residential areas were very similar to Cork. I wonder how come they are so similar? Penzance and Cork are to the West of the British Isles. I just love anything to do with St Michaels. I grew up near a St Michaels ley line. I visited the Tor in Glastonbury dedicated to St Michaels. I visited the St Michaels Church in Camden. Then there is the St Michaels Mount in Penzance. There is also the Skellig islands, in Ireland. Skellig has a monastery built into it cliffs by monks and it was dedicated to St Michaels and features in the new Star Wars film. There is also the St Michael Church in Britanny,France and finally there is a St Michaels Church in Cork! St Michael symbolises courage and strength.
