About: One of the many resources of the Representative Church Body Library is a collection of 19th and 20th century architectural drawings of Church of Ireland churches and cathedrals. In 2011 the Library secured a grant from the Esme Mitchell Trust to conduct a pilot project to digitize and catalogue these drawings. A subsequent grant from the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has enabled further work to be done. As a result, an important heritage resource is now freely available online. This blog entry relates to architectural drawings of St. Mary’s Church, Blessington from around 1850.
