||CO. ANTRIM, DERRYKEIGHAN (DERVOCK), CHURCH OF ST COLMAN (CI)
||New church. 'The original church was a very small and incommodious building; but in 1831[sic] G. Macartney, Esq., [of Lissanoure] gave an Irish acre of land, which he enclosed with a stone wall, Close to the town of Dervock, as a site for the erection of a new church, towards the building of which he contributed also £150; a sum was raised by subscription in the neighbourhood, and the late Board of First Fruits granted a loan of £600.and with these sums the present church was completed. It is a spacious and handsome structure in the later English style of architecture, woth a lofty square embattled tower, crowned with pinnacles; being too small for the congregation it is about to be enlarged by the addition of transepts...'. FS laid, 1829; consecrated 9 Sep 1831.
