St. Patrick’s United Church, Patrick’s Street, Waterford, is an ecumenical congregation under Methodist care. The current 300-year-old heritage building, built in 1727 AD, is located just inside the medieval city wall on a site that dates back to the twelfth century. One of the pleasures of the Imagine launch was an opportunity to see interior beautifully restored to gleaming Georgian splendour.
There are several events scheduled for St Patricks's as part of Imagine Festival.
