Church of the Ascension, Gurranabraher
The Parish of Gurranabraher/Churchfield, (Irish: Garrán na mBráthar – meaning the grove of the Brothers), lies in the northern suburbs; about three kilometres from Cork city centre. It is bordered by Farranree on the east, by Sunday’s Well on the west, by Knocknaheeny on the north and the Cathedral parish on the south. The Church, which looks majestically over Cork city, was built and opened on Ascension Thursday, 1955 – originally serving as an out-station Church of the Cathedral until it was canonically erected as a parish on July 1, 1969.
