Thursday Doors – Ramor Theatre, Virginia, Cavan

Welcome to another Thursday Doors post from Cavan, this time it’s the Town of Virginia. One of the focal points in the main street is this building, which now houses the Ramor Theatre. It was erected around 1845, at the time of the Great Hunger. Built originally as St. Mary’s Catholic Church on a disused plot of land, it took only nine months to complete at a time when there was great hardship, yet it stands solid and strong today – a testament to the skilled tradesmen of the day. Let’s have a closer look at that stained glass window.

Then main entrance is to the left of the building while an iron gate on the right leads to a side door.

The house next door had a couple of unusual occupants. Very suspicious looking, if you ask me.

There’s a door in there somewhere, at the top of those old steps.

You can see more info about the Ramor Theatre on their website. As always, thanks for stopping by. Next week I’ll post some more photos of Virginia with a little bit of history thrown in but in the meantime, maybe you’d like to see what interesting Thursday Doors Norm has on his blog.

    Lol… those weird looking characters might be troublemakers – but I LOVE those beautiful stained-glass windows and the ivy-covered number at the top of the stairs. Thank you, Jean:))

    • That ivy covered door is how our back door looked when we bought our house, Sarah. I was nervous about going through because I was sure lots of insects were living in the ivy, so I put my jacket over my head and ran in.

    I always like the photos where you know there has to be door somewhere. It’s a beautiful building remarkably short time to build it.

    The whole building is interesting, but those windows are unusual and I like them.

    The stained glass is both striking and quite unique and there’s nothing that impresses me about a building more than knowing it was so well-built that it doesn’t seem to show signs of the wear and tear that naturally come with age.
    And yes, I hope someone is keeping a close eye on those two shady-looking characters who live there 😉
