Holy Family Church


Southill, Co. LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • The Holy Family Parish Church in Southill was built in 1970 through the generosity of the priests, sisters, teachers and the people of the parish. The building doubled as a community hall until the church was refurbished in 1990–96 under the supervision of the architect Thomas A. Ryan.
  • This site was one of 23 venues for the 31st edition of EVA in 2007, curated by Klaus Ottmann (b. 1964, Germany).
  • Holy Family Church was one of numerous sites for a project by Miriam Lohan (b. 1975, Ireland) titled Ringing Limerick. On 7 May 2007, between the times of 11:15am and 11:45am, the artist organised 13 churches around Limerick city to their bells simultaneously.
  • This performance was recorded and available to listen to after the event.
