The Sacred Heart Church
Roscommon Town, Co. Roscommon
Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Roscommon Town is notable for many reasons, as not only does it boast a 53m-high spire, but its interior also features colourful mosaics on the floor and walls, some inspired by Botticelli and Michelangelo.

Roscommon Town’s Sacred Heart Catholic Church was designed by Walter Doolin and P.J. Kilgallon and opened in 1903.

The stunning church has many features that make it worth a visit. The structure's 53m-high spire extends toward the sky, while inside there are many beautiful mosaics, including some created by Salviati of Venice.

Other colourful mosaics decorating the walls and floor take inspiration from Botticelli and Michelangelo. Outside, there is a sunken grotto for an introspective visit.
