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.
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.
