Each entry includes other fascinating buildings in the area that are worth a detour. There are Gothic Revival churches, neo-Classical, Byzantine, English Arts-and-Crafts and Modernist as well as a few built prior to the Reformation. Behind every one is a compelling story, peopled by courageous old Catholic families; visionary priests and religious orders; captains of industry and commerce; and poor Irish migrants who contributed their pennies, and often their labour, to raise buildings that give glory to God.
