Cloughey Presbyterian Church

The ‘old’ Presbyterian Church in Cloughey was built in 1842 on a plot of ground between the road and the sea which had been donated by John Echlin of Echlinville and the Reverend I R Echlin.  Before that, services were held in Kirkistown Castle.

 The new Presbyterian Church in Cloughey is located at 69B Main Road BT22 1HY and there are no war memorials in either the old or new churches.
