The Sacred Heart
Church on the Derry Road was awarded Listed Status in
Strabane during the summer of 2010. Including our church
in the list of buildings of special architectural and
historical interest, the Department of the Environment
gave the following evaluation:
and render Roman Catholic church dating from the 1930s
and retaining most original detailing and fabric intact,
both externally and internally. The church occupies
a prominent urban setting, enhanced by a complementary
gate screen, and dates from the early twentieth century
development of Strabane which is evident on this stretch
of road. The exterior is characterised by Romanesque
and classical references enlivened with distinct twentieth
century ornamentation. Like the exterior, the interior
contains references to several architectural styles
and these contribute positively to the buildings character.
The church has social interest for the local community”.
