St. George's Church

This place of Worship is a donative from the PERY family to the city of Limerick, and the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Limerick, pays the Minister his stipend, exclusively from himself.  In addition to this, his Lordship, some years since, allotted some building ground to make a fund to meet the annual contingencies of Clerk's salary &c.
  The inhabitants of this city, and particularly Saint Michael's Parish, are now, we understand, to be solicited for subscriptions to put this Edifice into such a state of repair as becomes a place of worship.  The Parishioners of St. Michael have had the use of this Church now for upwards of 35 years, and in that time they have been but once called on for any contribution for this purpose; and the subscription then did not amount to 70.
  It can scarcely then be imagined that they will now refuse to uphold their place if worship, given them through the generocity of others—or that they can prove wholly unmindful of the claims so justly preferred by their Minister, in seeking from them their contributions for such a purpose.  Indeed we will not even entertain a doubt of support from our dissenting inhabitants of this parish when we consider how freely the members of the established Church have contributed to the improvement and erection of Chapels of almost all denominations in the Parish.  Subscribers names will be given from time to time.  It is proposed to put a new roof on the Church, and the sum necessary to be raised is six hundred pounds, at the least.
