Findlater's Church, Dublin 1
Presbyterians were prominent in Dublin as early as 1594 with the
appointment of Rev. William Travers, a Presbyterian clergyman, as the
first regular Provost of Trinity College. Two of the first fellows,
James Fullerton and James Hamilton, were also Presbyterians.
In the 1860s the growth of the congregation and a substantial increase in rent on the Mary's Abbey property made it desirable for the congregation to seek new premises. By the great generosity of Alexander Findlater, a Dublin merchant, the present site in Rutland Square (now Parnell Square) was bought and a church building was erected at a cost of £14,000. The building is popularly known as 'Findlater's Church' and is referred to by that name in two of James Joyce's novels. The opening services were held in November, 1864.
The Abbey Presbyterian Church, opened in 1864 and is more commonly called Findlater's Church, in memory of its chief benefactor, Alexander Findlater, founder of a one-time grocery, wine and spirit chain of stores
