Photographer's Note

the tower, seen here in the centre of the picture, and a gable wall, are all that remain of the old 'all saints' church of ireland building in tullylish, county down.

the foundation stone was laid in 1861 during the incumbency of the reverend WB Yeats who was the rector of the parish from 1836 to 1862. he was the grandfather of WB Yeats, the poet and dramatist, and of JB Yeats the painter.

before this one, the original church was destroyed in the 1641 rebellion and finally rebuilt in 1698. it remained in use until the present church was built a few hundred metres away.
