St Anne’s Church, Killanne

Features

St Anne’s Church is a rural church in Killanne, County Wexford.

The Anglican church may be an ideal filming location where a tranquil rural location is needed. It is located on quiet road outside the small village of Killanne. It has no direct neighbours and sits on a tree-lined stretch of road. The old-fashioned church would therefore lend itself readily to being used for period scenes.

The location also has good views of the Blackstairs Mountains. Mount Leinster, Blackrock Mountain and Croaghaun can be seen from the graveyard. This mountainous vista gives the church a powerful atmosphere.

The church was built in 1835 and is of the early English style. Behind the altar is a beautiful set of stained-glass ‘Trinity Windows’ from 1938. The ceiling inside the church is of elaborate timber work and is very impressive. The lichen-covered, rough granite exterior adds to the tranquil and historic feeling of the building.

The church has a moderately large graveyard on its grounds. Across the road is St Anne’s Historic Graveyard. A holy well is also located nearby.
