Ballybunion, Catholic Church. From an old postcard in Reg Dosell's Collection.
Ballydonoghue, St. Teresa. Previously in the "Unknown" section. Cathy Umbers, on behalf of a friend, was hoping to get an identification for a church in County Kerry, probably near Lixnaw (though it definitely isn't Luxnaw church itself). Although they obtained the identification though other sources, I'm glad to be able to include the solution here.
