Northside Martyr

I am familiar with the statue of Margaret Ball outside the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin. I knew she was Blessed, which is almost half way to being a saint.

But it was only today, passing a spot I have passed many times, that I noticed she had a church dedicated to her. And that is not too far from where she lived (Santry versus Ballygall).

Dublin is ever full of surprises even for an aging Dub.

And those Ballygallers sure are a mixed bunch: Marian Finucane, Paddy Cosgrave, Colm Meaney and Senan Moloney, to name but a few.
