Trinity, Cork Presbyterian Church

Trinity, Cork Presbyterian Church

Little William Street off York Street is the current (and long term) situation of the Trinity, the Cork Presbyterian Church. It is on an eye catching site at the junction of McCurtain Street and Brian Boru Street.

The congregation was founded, mainly by Scottish settlers, in the 1830s and eventually a building was erected in Queen Street (now Father Matthew Street). The present Gothic-style building at Summerhill North dates from 1861 and has three distinctive stained glass windows to represent the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (the Trinity).

About 30 families are now linked to the church and there has been a recent boost thanks to immigrants from places as diverse as South Korea, Hungary, Brazil, Cameroun, Nigeria and the USA.
