Thursday Doors

Shalom House Youghal County CorkShalom House, Youghal, County Cork

For this week’s Thursday Doors I took a walk along a quiet street, not far from my workplace. I hadn’t been up there in ages but knew I would find some great doors to photograph in such a historical area.

historical youghal corkI wasn’t wrong, near the Almshouses, you’ll find Shalom House. Constructed by the Protestant Relief Society in 1838 to provide accommodation for the homeless, it was renovated in 1991 and renamed Shalom House. This lovely old building is part of an ecumenical regeneration scheme for older persons in partnership with Friends of Respond!, Youghal.

Pay a visit to Norm’s blog and see what magnificent door he’s featuring this week.

  1. Doors with historical community significance are always welcome doors. 🙂

    • That’s true, Judy. Quite a few tourists every year think that these doors are open to the public and ask to be shown around but it’s a private residence. I don’t blame them, as it looks so inviting to anyone interested in historical buildings.

    Such a stately set of doors. I love the peaked lines above the doors and the way the windows are shaped. They just draw your attention up. Very nice selection. Thanks for sharing the history of them too.
