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.
