Photographer's Note

Pictured here is the entrance to St Patrick's Catholic church in the town of Trim, Co Meath

Built between 1890 and 1905 it is Gothic Revival in style and presents an imposing landmark in the town, with its immense steeple rises over the surrounding land. It is noted for its beautiful stained glass windows which depict the crucifixion and the history of Trim.

It has always been that the doors to a church in Ireland are never locked so that those who seek solace can always find it. Sadly, in todays world this is no longer the case in many places. Particularly in the cities, parish churches must often remain locked to keep out those who would do damage.

In this church though, the doors always remain open, so one can ramble in and out and take in the beautiful light and solemn quiet of this sanctuary.
