FORMER KINGSLAND CHURCH AT THE CORNER OF VICTORIA STREET AND ST. KEVINS ROAD

FORMER KINGSLAND CHURCH IN PORTOBELLO

FORMER KINGSLAND CHURCH AT THE CORNER OF VICTORIA STREET AND ST. KEVINS ROAD – NOW AN EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE

It would appear that this building is currently used by the Department Of Social Welfare as an Employment Exchange and its official address is 29 Victoria St, Dublin 8, D08 E6C1.


About ten years ago I read in the Irish Times that the 19TH century Kingsland Church at St Kevin’s Road in Portobello was to be sold on behalf of the trustees of the Methodist church. At the time the asking price was about €1.3 million for the building which ceased being used as a church in the 1940s. From the 1950s, the church was used as the Women’s Only Employment Exchange.
