The Church of St. John the Baptist, Tralee is a 19th century Gothic-Revival Church. It places emphasis on height and pointed features for example the spire, pointed arces, lancet windows and the Baldacchino over the main altar. The body of the tower is local sandstone, and the octogonal spire is in limestone.

In 1854 the foundation stone of St. John's Church was laid on the site of a chapel dating back to 1780. The 'Chapel' faced in the east-west direction. Some artifacts of the 1780 chapel have survived - the Holy Water font (Mortuary Chapel), Our Lady of the Wayside statue (near front porch on the outside), and the gables of the 18th century building, which are contained in the transepts of the present church. The building was completed, to the design of J.J. McCarthy, in 1861 with the erection of the Great Sanctuary window. In 1870 the tower and spire were added. The height of the spire is 200 feet.

A magnificent photo that has museum quality. Done to perfection and is one that should be created on a travel postcard. What a beautiful area and would enourage tourists to visit...but maybe the town would not want this --as so many times tourists
spoil the charm
Thank you for sharing such beauty

Brilliant photo of this great piece of architecture Peter,..such a fabulous lead in...

Well done Chelsea,...definitely better for the first hour...if only we didn't "gift" the first goal...Carroll has arrived at least,...and no point talking about the one over the line or not,...how the hell did he get a hand to it???.....must go down as one the best saves of all time...

Thank you Joe.

It was a great game, but yet more evidance, if it was needed for the powers that will be to introduce goal-line technology. The sonner FIFA get rid of that relic Blatter and put someone in charge with a bit of vision the better. Now I will get back to biting my nails in anticipation of the Champions league final - and my €10 on Chelsea to win at 10/1 (placed before the quarter-final).
