Ireland, Carrick-on-Shannon, in right side is Costello memorial chapel.
A remarkable example of one man’s deep love for his wife, this tiny R.C. chapel on Bridge Street in Carrick is the smallest in Ireland and reputedly the second smallest in the world.
When Mary Josephine Costello died at the age of 47 on 6th of October 1877 her heart-broken husband, Edward Costello, had her body embalmed and placed in the care of the Marist Sisters in Carrick-on-Shannon. He immediately commissioned, no expense spared, to have erected this beautiful Chapel in her memory and a last resting place for them both.
on the left is St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Built in the Gothic style, it was designed by W.H. Hague, a distinguished Dublin architect. It was dedicated on 19 October 1879. The church is enhanced by its position on elevated ground and the flights of stone steps leading to it.
