September 2015 - Dublin Ireland
We came across this down a lane off Grafton St. I would have gone inside but it was very busy with people coming and going at rush hours.
St Teresa's is Dublin's oldest Roman Catholic church and was built in 1793 for the Order of the Discalced Carmelites who first came to Ireland in 1626. In 1877 a new transept was added in Romanesque style.
I had thought that "discalced" was a typo until I came across it in several places.
DISCALCED - denoting or belonging to one of several strict orders of Catholic friars or nuns who go barefoot or wear only sandals.
5th Centenary of the Birth of St. Teresa of Avila
