All Saints Catholic Church
This is a beautifully designed Catholic Church was built in 1999 for €1.2 million in the village of Newtoncunningham
The church is built in a post-modernist style with a striking profile, and is a landmark feature in the village and can be seen from the main Letterkenny to Derry road.
Its unusual design is based on St. Peter’s fishing boat (Barque or Bark), the boat he used for fishing on the Sea of Galilee and an early symbol of the early Christian church. It is meant to symbolise the Catholic faith sailing through both rough and calm seas into the third millennium.
It was built using local stone with angled slated roofs. It features stained glass windows reminiscent of the ship’s portholes and murals by local artists.
