|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!
