St Mary's Parish Church CoI, Crumlin Road
St Mary's Parish Church CoI, Crumlin Road
Built in the 1860s of sandstone and Mourne granite, St Mary's was designed in the gothic style with an enormous central tower and at a cost 6,500. The parish served an area dependent on the linen industry and suffered a decline when that industry collapsed in the 1960s. One of St Mary's more unusual parishioners was John Graham, Belfast Commander and Northern Director of Intelligence of the IRA in the 1940s. A staunch Protestant he successfully fought against the placing of a picture of the Virgin Mary in the church.
