  • Notes 
    • John Valentine's commissions were primarily ecclesiastical consisting chiefly of work on Roman Catholic Churches and Parochial Houses in the northern half of the Island. He also designed a number of banks in Ulster. First from 1917-18 for the Belfast Bank and subsequently for the National Bank.
      Extract from the Derry Journal (June 29th 1928)
      Yesterday the sacred edifice was crowded to the doors when solemn high mass commenced at noon. In the interior of the church and particularly within the sacred sanctuary, with it's many coloured marbles, there was revealed a spectacle of beauty and chasteness - reflecting in conjunction with the general character of the construction - the greatest credit on the architect Mr J V Brennan MRIAI.
