Built in 1911 in early French Gothic-style, and boasting a 6m-wide stained-glass rose window, this imposing church and monastery is home to the Redemptorists. This Catholic movement was founded in Italy in 1732 and its story is depicted in floor and ceiling mosaics. The interior also features red granite, Portland stone and marble columns. The crypt was used as a WW2 air-raid shelter and contains the bodies of over 20 priests - one of them the architect's son. Each June Clonard Church hosts a nine-day Festival of Faith when 15,000 daily pilgrims pray at the shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. It is a spectacular sight and well worth a visit if you're in town. Outside this time, the Church is also used as an impressive backdrop for occasional music performances.
