The present Abbey Church at Parnell Square in Dublin City Centre was constructed thanks to the generosity of wine merchant Alexander Findlater. It has a 55 meter spire and is referred to in the works of James Joyce.

The Abbey Church in Dublin City’s Parnell Square is often referred to as Findlater's Church in honour of its benefactor, Alexander Findlater. The wine merchant donated money to purchase the land and build the Gothic-style, Presbyterian church, which opened in 1864.

James Joyce refers to Findlater’s Church in two of his works.
