St Mary's Catholic Church, Patrick Street, Greenock - 1
The first St Mary's Church was opened in 1816, but, because of the
large increase in Irish Catholic immigrants it was soon too small.
The pictured Church was built to accommodate this increase and was opened in 1862.
The Tower on the corner was supposed to be much taller ... but construction funds ran out at this height
