Lisbane Roman Catholic Church
Lisbane Roman Catholic Church
"This is on the west side of the main road from Newtownards to Portaferry, two miles south of Kircubbin It is in the townland of Lisbane in the civil and Roman Catholic parish of Ardkeen The old chapel of Moyndele was nearby within the townland, and mass was celebrated during the penal period on the site of the present church A cross-shaped tablet on the inner side of the west wall reads:- "Lord I have loved the beauty of thy house and the place where thy glory dwelleth This house was erected AD 1777, Daniel O'Doran PP" The church is an attractive little building with a roof of thick old Tullycavey slates It was reduced to the status of mortuary chapel after the new church was built at Ballycranbeg in 1876 and became rather dilapidated, to be restored again in the late 1960s. The graveyard is fairly level and well-kept with most of the graves in front of the church, the area to the seaward side being largely rock The oldest stone is said to be of 1829 (see Smyth) though there is one with the date 1808 (Quin) All stones with dates prior to 1865 have been copied There are many stones of 1865-1900 but few of this century."
