The Daniel O’Connel Memorial Church is the the only church in Ireland to be called after a layman. This church was built, and named with special papal permission, after the great statesman Daniel O’Connell, a lay person, neither a saint, nor a deity, but a man who worked tirelessly for Catholic emancipation by way of mass movemment of people, in Ireland in the 17th and 18th century.
