St. Multose Church Kinsale: As it was, and is, and ought to be
by John Lindsey Darling
St. Multose church, Kinsale has been a place of worship since the 1190s. In the 1890s the then rector of Kinsale, the Rev. John Lindsey Darling, sought to carry out work on the building that would restore some of its medieval features that had been lost over time. Part of this effort was to publish this volume St. Multose Church Kinsale: As it was, and is, and ought to be. It used architectural drawings, sketches and photographs to illustrate the history of the church, its state in the 1890s and the alterations that were proposed to restore it to its former self. While the Rev. Darling’s vision was never fulfilled his beautifully illustrated volume gives us a unique insight to the history and structure of this beloved building. This reproduction is a full reprint of the original volume.
