Church interior

The Ballee meeting-house was opened for worship in 1721, commemorated in a date stone on the long wall of the ‘T’. Smaller than Downpatrick the building is particularly notable for its impressive roof constructed from Memel pine imported from the distant Baltic Sea. The church interior was extensively renovated and a new organ, paid for by the Carnegie Trust, installed in 1912.
