Royal Chapel of St. Matthew, Ringsend [Dublin].
View of the exterior of the Royal Chapel of St. Matthew, [now known as St. Matthew's Church], Ringsend, Dublin from outside the walls - a man is depicted talking to a woman and a child while a labourer can be seen walking in the left foreground with a pitchfork over his shoulder. The chapel was built in 1704 and extended in 1879; it was called the Royal Chapel of St. Matthew from it's foundation until 1871 as the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin, Dr. William King (1650-1729) sought the government to pay for the church which was built under an act of the 2nd of Queen Anne and designated, by the 10th of George I., the "Royal chapel of St. Matthew, Ringsend". It is located at the junction of Irishtown Road and Church Avenue.
