Hist Ulster Churches

Historic Ulster Churches

In recognition of the remarkable ecclesiastical work of the architect Liam McCormick (1916-96) the Cultural Traditions Group established a Research Fellowship in 1996; UHCT was invited to oversee the Liam McCormick Research Fellowship on Historic Churches. As a result of the research undertaken in 1996-7, a book, Historic Ulster Churches, by the Research Fellow, Simon Walker, was published by the Institute of Irish Studies QUB in 2000. This book, with an introduction by Jonathan Bardon, gave an excellent overview of church building styles in Ulster by illustrating some 120 ecclesiastical buildings. It is currently out of print though secondhand copies can be obtained from Amazon. ISBN 085389 767 0 . Original price £12.50

Church Maintenance & Good Housekeeping Guide

£1.00 includes postage (UK)   |   €3.50 includes postage to RoI & Europe

In 2002 UHCT’s Maintenance Schedule & Good Housekeeping Guide was launched by the leaders of the four churches. At the launch Archbishop Eames said ‘I can’t imagine a more valuable project than one like this which has the potential to be a tremendous help to preserve churches’. Funding from Environment & Heritage Service enabled the Trust to distribute the Maintenance Schedule & Good Housekeeping Guide with technical notes to every church in Ulster.
The Maintenance Schedule & Good Housekeeping Guide prepared by the conservation architect, the late Dick Oram, is available for purchase from UHCT.
