Issue Date: 1988
Description: Glebe Newcastle Medieval Church 22.1.6: this was described in a grant of Henry III in 1228 as the 'mother church of the King's manor of Newcastle' with dependant chapel in Colmanstown. One of the archdeacons of Glendalough depended upon altarages from Newcastle, Athgoe, Loughtown, and Colganstown and other revenues to a total of £46 10s at the time of the dissolution of St Patrick's Cathedral in 1547. Ruinous by the time of the Cromwellians wars, the present church was completed in 1788. Removed from the Archdeaconry of Glendalough in 1861, the church presently is part of the Anglican parish of Newcastle and Newtownmountkennedy with Calary. A chancel and vestry were added in 1821 and 1856, respectively.
