Turns out now the church was actually developed from the remains of the old theatre!
Changed line 233 from:
PS when I first went to find it - having a couple of hours to wait before a train - it was pretty well a building site as it was just then being refurbished. I was told that there was a rumour that there had been a theatre on that site before it was a church but think that all the facts that are known about it now were discovered by intensive research while the refurbishment was going on.

Built on the site of the church of Saints Michael & John where the Fitzgerald family vault used to be before being transferred to St Andrews Westland Row. Read the fascinating history of the theatre - which goes back to the 1600s - by going to their website, clicking on the red bars then scrolling down to "About Us". It's absolutely central to the history of both Dublin and European theatre. And go see a play there. Well worth a visit.

Eight Fitzgeralds were buried in the vaults here, including George William (1810-1891) and his wife Marcella, four of their children (Edward, William, Charles and Henry), and Edward (1758-1834) and Edward (1796-1867).

All
their remains were removed and sent to the vaults at St Andrews when Ss Michael and John's was decommissioned some years ago. I found this out just by just hanging around the place and chatting with people. I contacted St Andrews afterwards and they sent me the list of Fizgeralds that were sent to them from there. They are all proven to be ours except for the oldest one - Edward 1758-1834 - and it looks as if he is ours also, but it is not yet proven.

!!St Andrews Church

\
The marriage of George William Fitzgerald to Marcella Dowdall on 19 Dec 1837 appears in the parish registers of St Andrews RC Church, Westland Row, a short distance from Fitzwilliam Street.


>>cframe width:400px<<
%width=400px% Attach:StAndrews.jpg%%
>><<

Actually the bride's name is entered as Matilda, but the marriage announcement in Freeman's Journal of 21 Dec 1837 is quite clear :

[-"On the 19th instant, George Willaim Fitzgerald, Esq. of Upper Fitzwilliam-street to Marcella, only daughter of the late William Dowdall, Esq., of the county Roscommon." (FJ 21.12.1837)-]

\\

The Parish Register has Edward and Mary Fitzgerald entered as sponsors at the wedding.

\\

At least nine of their subsequent eleven children were baptised there, and the records of the marriages of sons James and George are also in the parish register.

The remains of eight members of the family - including George William and Marcella - are also in the vaults here, having been moved from the church of Saints Michael and John when that church was decomissioned a few years ago.

\\

There's a nice picture of the inside of the church on St Andrew's own website : http://westlandrow.dublindiocese.ie/


Inside the church you can buy a lovely book full of photos and with an excellent history of the parish. Here's an extract:

\

[-"St Andrew's was the first Catholic Church to be built on a main thoroughfare. Though the Emancipation Law was in operation the government still refused to allow Catholic churches to be located on a main thoroughfares [sic] or in prominent locations. The fact the St Andrew's Church was built on a main thoroughfare and in a very prominent and fashionable area was a powerful political and religious statement and achievement. It is therefore not surprising that we find the Emancipator himself, Daniel O'Connell, driving forward the move of St Andrew's from Townsend St., and securing the site in Westland Row. However, there is one account that says that the plans were deliberately presented to the government showing the main entrace of the church to be in Cumberland Street and the back entrance on Westland Row and once the plans were sanctioned the entrances were switched." (Watson, Elizabeth, "An Enduring Presence : St Andrew's Church, Westland Row, Dublin", P22, May 2007)-]

\\

Ms Watson also says elsewhere on the same page that on the 2nd January 1834 St Andrew's Church was blessed and opened for worship though it was still incomplete. So I guess it would have been quite exciting to be married in it at that time.

All their remains were removed and sent to the vaults at St Andrews when Ss Michael and John's was decommissioned some years ago.

\

"St Andrew's was the first Catholic Church to be built on a main thoroughfare. Though the Emancipation Law was in operation the government still refused to allow Catholic churches to be located on a main thoroughfares [sic] or in prominent locations. The fact the St Andrew's Church was built on a main thoroughfare and in a very prominent and fashionable area was a powerful political and religious statement and achievement. It is therefore not surprising that we find the Emancipator himself, Daniel O'Connell, driving forward the move of St Andrew's from Townsend St., and securing the site in Westland Row. However, there is one account that says that the plans were deliberately presented to the government showing the main entrace of the church to be in Cumberland Street and the back entrance on Westland Row and once the plans were sanctioned the entrances were switched." (Watson, Elizabeth, "An Enduring Presence : St Andrew's Church, Westland Row, Dublin", P22, May 2007)

to:

At least nine of their subsequent eleven children were baptised there, and the records of the marriages of sons James and George are also in the parish register.

The remains of eight members of the family - including George William and Marcella - are also in the vaults here, having been moved from the church of Saints Michael and John when that church was decomissioned a few years ago.

I found on the same reel for example two seperate hand-written versions of the records in which I was searching. It's really nice that both versions were filmed, because there are human errors - several places in which the information given in one version is a significant little bit different from the other. The "Matilda" recorded above, for example, could have been a mistake in transferring the record of the marriage from one book to another.

Besides St Andrew's Parish records, the National Library in Dublin holds what must be a complete or near complete run of Dublin Directories dating from the first published. I think the gaps in the years that I found must have been because someone else was using the same books on the same day.

I consulted the microfilm of the Parish Registers held at the National Library in Dublin. The ownership of the images remains with the church, and one is allowed only to take pencil notes - written permission from the church must be obtained if before a copy can be taken.

\\

The time I spend in Dublin is always so short that it has taken a few trips for me to feel that I'm coming close to understanding these registers. It looks as if through the ages, when a register began to fade or deteriorate in such a way as to make it hard to read, a new hand-written copy was made. I found on the same reel for example two seperate hand-written versions of the records in which I was searching. It's really nice that both versions were filmed, because there are human errors - several places in which the information given in one version is a significant little bit different from the other. The "Matilda" recorded above, for example, could have been a mistake in transferring the record of the marriage from one book to another.

Though the Emancipation Law was in operation the government still refused to allow Catholic churches to be located on a main thoroughfares [sic] or in prominent locations.
