Late-Evening service of Compline resumes at idyllic St Brendan’s Church, Crookhaven

The most southerly chapel in Ireland, St Brendan’s Church in Crookhaven, resumes its late-evening service of Compline every Sunday in July and August. The services will begin at 8.30pm and the small stone chapel, which was built in 1717, welcomes all denominations and anyone who is on holidays or visiting West Cork.

The site of St Brendan’s Church has been a place of worship since the Early Middle Ages and the structure of the present day building is very much the same from the early 18th century. There is no electricity supply at the chapel – the lighting is natural during the day and comes from candles and gas lights at dusk, creating the atmospheric setting that St Brendan’s is well-known for. Following is the list of guest preacher for each service:

July 2nd: Mr Andrew Coleman
July 9th: Rev. Stephen McCann
July 16th: Rev. Damien O’Cathain
July 23rd: Rev. Canon Eithne Lynch
July 30th: Rev. Canon Denis McCarthy
August 6th: Baroness Julia Neuberger
August 13th: Right Rev. Dr Richard Clarke
August 20th: Rev. Craig Philbrick
August 27th: Rev. Gary Philbrick
