St. Marnock’s Graveyard Strand Road Portmarnock
In direction Portmarnock village, just after the Portmarnock Hotel, you come to the Artworks Cafe, go as far as the next bus-stop, then on your left hand side in the wall is the gate into a field with a track leading directly to the old graveyard.
(The field used to be a cattle field that John Ryan of Tamango Nightclub used to graze cattle on, a local joke being that he put a nicer gate on his new ‘farm’…. ).
There was a Well near the church, where the locals used to celebrate ‘Patrons Day’ in August and make rounds of the Well.
The Well-pilgrimages stopped when Mr. Jameson diverted the water to the near by cattle pond and filled the Holy Well.
Saint Marnock’s Presbyterian Church
There is an old church at ‘Old Portmarnock’, near the Portmarnock Raceway beside Plunketts Cottages which sometimes gets confused with St.Marnock’s on Strand Road.
Built 1780, located beside the raceway in what is now called ‘Old Portmarnock’, but was in its day Portmarnock.
1881 the parish of ‘old Portmarnock’ was united with Malahide and the church itself closed down in 1960 and sold privately.
