Church of the Sacred Heart, Dunlewey with Errigal, the highest mountain in Donegal in the background
There are of course many churches around the county of Donegal and we are trying eventually to have photographs of them all here. As well as churches, we add photographs of the graveyards as well. Many people who's relations came from Donegal can view their deceased loved one's final resting place this way and indeed many of the graveyards are placed in very scenic places.
Most of the churches here are in use but we have also added photographs of old churches no longer in use, some very ancient and little more than ruins but strong in history.
In Ireland during Penal Times many people were not allowed to follow their faith and so as a result there are Catholic Mass Rocks dotted around the county, hidden from view but still there after hundreds of years. Some are still in use today for special occasions or an annual mass. Some of these Mass Rocks can be viewed HERE.
Below is a list of churches and graveyards in County Donegal. The list is an on going work and is in no way complete as we add photographs of more churches and graveyards as we find them on our photographic travels around Donegal.
We have divided the individual pages which contain photographs and the location of the church and/or graveyard under the town of village in which the church or graveyard is located. Just click any of the links below to visit the page.
