The building needs much renovation work to make it a liveable space, but there are some beautiful features still intact such as the stone brick structure and latticed stain glazed windows.

The potential of the property is huge for any buyers willing to take on a project.

The former church would be a massively spacious home with room for the whole family to play, study and relax.

The surrounding area also offers plenty of opportunity for walking, cycling and exploring.

The option is also there for an office space or workshop to be created out of the church.

As the community church, it would have regularly held dozens of people in relative comfort as the locals attended mass.

Renovations of old religious buildings is a current trend in the property market across the Irish Sea in the UK.

Many developers have created luxury family homes, or slick new business premises out of the former religious buildings.

The opportunity is there for someone to do something similar with this Co Donegal abandoned church.

The church building is available with an asking price of €65,000. The sale is being handled by Martin McGowan’s estate agents.

On their website, they suggest the 2,000 sq ft former church could be turned into a restaurant, funeral home, or split into several individual apartments.
