|St. Malachy’s Church of Ireland
in Main Street
The parish church of Hillsborough is clearly the focal point of the area. It is a most magnificent church, thanks to Hill family patronage over many centuries. However, although it is the oldest church in the district, it is not medieval, the foundation dating only from 1662. The only ecclesiastical ruin in the three parishes with any pretensions to antiquity is the ‘Chapel of Cromlyn’ in the grounds of Hillsborough Castle. The chapel was dedicated to St. Malachy and was attached to the church of Drumbo at the time of the taxation of Pope Nicholas (1306). It was a ruin in 1622 and is also mentioned in a visitation of 1633. The site continued to be used as a burial ground until the enclosure of Hillsborough demesne prevented this. A church was built in 1663. On 6 January 1839 an ancient willow beside the chapel blew down, revealing several human bones as evidence for a burying ground and a habit-clad skeleton, clutching a silver chalice, leads us to suspect that an earlier ecclesiastical establishment existed in this area.
(Reeves, Ecclesiastical Antiquities, p.45).
The new church was built by Arthur Hill, Peter’s brother and it flourished for over 100 years until Wills Hill, first Marquis of Downshire decided to enlarge and rebuild it to the present size.
St. Malachy’s was rebuilt between 1760-74 and was paid for by Wills Hill, 1st Marquis of Downshire. The original 17th century church was in very bad repair and the new church, although large, used some of the old foundations. The architects for the spire c. 1770 was James & David McBlain
This film was based on a true story from Aidan Quinn’s Irish parents and adapted into the screenplay. I loved this movie! A great story, wonderful photography.
History, romance, mystery with an unexpected twist. And last but not least Aidan Quinn is wonderful in this movie!
If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility. Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

“Ms. Magnus has spent 15 years as the house’s caretaker.
PICTURE this: Your humdrum city life is turned upside down when you inherit, wholly unexpectedly, a vast Victorian country estate. You manage to scrape together enough cash to fix the leaky roof and settle precariously into your new home, leaving behind your job, your friends, your plans for the future. For more than a decade, you scramble to keep up with the expense of maintaining the huge establishment. And then lightning strikes again: A film company comes along, asking to use the house as the set for its adaptation of a best-selling novel. The production pays a hefty six-figure rent and helps renovate the long-neglected interior, and you also get a surprise dividend: a little of the stars’ glamour rubs off on you and your suddenly famous country seat.” nytimes.com Jonathan Player for The New York Times
“Atonement,” adapted from Ian McEwan’s novel, was filmed at Stokesay Court, an 1891 manor house in Shropshire, England, that Caroline Magnus inherited from an aunt.
I love this movie! I also love this dress! A friend told me not to go to this movie that it was boring. This movie is brilliant ! It makes one think of the extraordinary power of a lie and or misinterpreting what one sees.
