The Building Of Our Church

The building work was carried out under the direction of Canon James Flood, parish priest of Walkinstown. Canon Flood did extraordinary work in raising funds for the new Church as well as St. Peter’s Boys School. The Funding Programme commenced in June 1965. At that time the sum required came to approximately £1,000,000. Fortunately for Canon Flood the Sister's of Charity of St. Paul the Apostle not only presented him with two sites for the girls Primary and Secondary Schools, but also built them at their own cost. This reduced his requirements to £600,000. The final cost of the church came to £261,000 when it was finished in 1971. This was £41,000 more than Canon Flood had estimated in 1965. The main contractor for the Church was John Du Moulin. The foreman for the building was John Redmond.
