Adelaide Memorial Church[edit]

The Adelaide Memorial Church in Myshall

The Church of Ireland Adelaide Memorial Church of Christ the Redeemer in Myshall is a miniature version of Salisbury Cathedral. Completed in 1913, Dover-based businessman, John Duguid, commissioned it in memory of his daughter Constance, who was killed in a horse riding accident while visiting her sister in Myshall, and her mother Adelaide, who died in 1903. Both are buried here.[citation needed]

The parish of Myshall has five cemeteries: three in the village itself, one about a mile out the Carlow road, and one in Drumphea about two miles from the village.[3]

Sport[edit]

Myshall is home to Naomh Eoin GAA club. Since its formation the club has won 18 Carlow Senior Hurling Championships. They are also the only Carlow team to have won a senior hurling and football double (in 1986) and an U-21 hurling and football double in 2010. The Juvenile Teams range from U6-to U18 or Minor.[4]

Myshall is also the home of Myshall Camogie Club. This club won the county camogie championship for 15 years in a row and 3-in-a-row in the Leinster junior club competition (2011, 2012, and 2013) and were All-Ireland junior club champions in 2012 and 2013.[citation needed]
