Ireland
This church was dedicated in 1839 and had the portico added in 1861. The architect Kearn Deane, delivered the project free of charge, even thought he himself wasn't a Catolic. This fine pieces of architecture has six fluted lonic columns supporting a pediment surmounted by statue of Our Lady, created by James Cahill from Dublin. The building is constructed mostly of white limestone. The interior features sixteen fluted pillars alongthe nave and sanctuary. There are alco four red 3,5 metre pillars of polished Aberdeen granite. The altar is adorned with a 14th century statue of Our Lady of the Graces which reportedly Has miraculous powers. This fairly small statue originated in northern France and is said to have arrived in Irelad in the 15th century, floating in a log into Youghal harbour , where it remained until was taken to St. Marys.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
