The chapel

Chapel

I made a welcome return to the city of Derry in Northern Ireland, which focused on visiting Dermot’s family.

On the face of it, this photograph merely captures a beautiful piece of architecture.

It is the chapel of St Patrick’s in the Pennyburn area of the city. Built in the 1930s, it is relatively small, neat and without much ostentation. There is a wonderful circular stained glass window at the front of the building and a green bell tower. I love its yellow ceiling and clean symmetry.

St Patrick’s echoes the sentiment of our journey, as it has a strong connection to Dermot’s family. His parents were married there in 1981, and his grandmother regularly worships there. It is more than just a building.
