The Catholic parish of Harrington St was founded from the parish of Francis St in 1865. It covers an area bounded to the north by Long Lane, Camden Row and Montague St, to the south by the Grand Canal, to the west by Dufferin Ave, and to the east by Harcourt St. If you are a Catholic living within these confines, Harrington St is your parish.
The parish church is St Kevin’s, one of Dublin’s finest gothic-revival buildings. It was designed by E. W. Pugin and G. Ashlin, and built between 1869 and 1872, though the work of decorating the interior continued for several years afterwards.
From 1880 until 1974 Cardinal Newman’s University Church, St Stephen’s Green, served as a chapel of ease to the parish.
In addition to being a parish church, in September 2007 St Kevin’s became the home of the newly-established Latin Mass Chaplaincy, which draws people from all over the city of Dublin and beyond; see www.latinmassdublin.ie.
