The Street Pews of Ireland

If you spend any time traveling through Ireland you are sure to come across a number of religious shrines and grottoes situated next to the road. Ireland seems full of roadside shrines of the Virgin Mary, local saints or religious crucifixes.

Street Pew is a crowd-sourced map dedicated to mapping these roadside shrines. Using the map you can find the location of roadside shrines throughout the country. What's more if you select a marker on the map you can even check-out the shrine using Google Maps Street View.

If you know the location of a roadside shrine or grotto that isn't listed then you can add it to the map by clicking on the 'Add Shrine' link.
