Walking down Kildare street you will come to the Presbytarian Church, built in the hay day of Ardglass as a SPA and Bathing Centre. A handy footpath leads you downhill towards the Harbour if you are looking for a shortcut back to The Marina.
A congregation was formed with Rev. Joseph Burns ordained in 1841. Rev. Thomas MacAfee was minister for an amazing 65 years from 1845- 1910. We are still researching more for this page .
