Overview

This former Protestant church, now restored as a heritage centre, was once part of the Pre-Reformation burial ground and church site of Carrick Mor. The centre is situated on the main street of Carrick-on-Suir. Its interesting gravestones include a memorial to Thomas Butler, who died in 1604, an illegitimate son of Thomas, 10th Earl of Ormond. Buried here too is the diarist and poet Dorothea Herbert, 1770-1829, author of Retrospections. Many local artefacts and photographs are on display, including the Butler Church plate collection and there is also a service for those researching their genealogy. Closed for refurbishment until late 2019.
