Friends of Collon Church

Registered Charity Number 20152826

Friends of Collon Church was set up to help maintain and repair historic Collon Church. The Church is a prominent landmark building in Collon village. The Friends group is a cross community organisation including people of all denominations who wish to maintain and secure this building which is so important to the identity and history of Collon village.

We are delighted that we have been awarded a grant under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme run by Louth Co Council. This means we have reached our current fundraising target, and it is hoped that replacement for the outer roof can take place in 2019.Thanks everybody

The Friends group continue to welcome all financial help to maintain and repair this important and historic building.

Collon Church is an eccentric and engaging building.  We happen to know a great deal about the church whether by studying the building on its own; studying the buildings associated with it; or studying the large amount of surviving original documents relating to it.  The church is a continuously evolving archive that allows one to construct a living history of life in Collon, County Louth and Ireland in general in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  It is hoped that those entrusted with Collon Church will secure its future for the benefit and enjoyment of generations to come.
