No.1
Notice at St.Mary's Church, Leixlip
The original church on this site was built in the 12th
Century.  Only the tower survived an attack by Robert
Bruce in 1317.  Major reconstruction was carried out in
the 17th Century.  To meet the cost of the reconstruction
a tax was imposed on each house in the parish.
Archbishop Price, benefactor of Arthur Guinness is
interred here as is Deborah Marsh, sister of Narcissus
Marsh, Archbishop of Dublin, and founder of the
renowned Marsh's Library.  The clock on the tower dates
from the 18th Century.
