Ballymacelligott Church


"Unusual Scottish Style Church"

This Anglican church has a distinctively Scottish style and was built by the MacElligot family. Originally from the Isle of Skye, they came to Ireland with Strongbow's nephew, Geoffery de Marisco. A military family, they played active roles in both the Cromwellian and Williamite wars. In the 18th century, a number of them served with distinction in the Austrian army. The church is extremely well kept, with simple decoration throughout. A lovely stained glass window close to the entrance is simply and tastefully made from various coloured diamonds. The graveyard is the final resting-place for many of Kerry's noble families with large tombs and old carved tributes.
