St. Cronan's Church, Balla 

Balla, Co. Mayo.

Roman Catholic Church is a protected structure in Balla and dates back to 1910.

The church which is Gothic in design is one of the best designed hall churches, i.e. the central aisle is tunnel-vaulted and the side aisles are flat ceilinged.

The southern porch resembles the medieval doorway of Cong Abbey.

The altar of the Lady Chapel is a copy of the altar in Holy Cross Abbey.

The high altar built in 1918 is of multi-polychromatic marble. The stained glass windows are by Harry Clarke and The Clarke Studies and bear the inscription in Irish: "Ros Dairbhreach is ainm don Ait seo fe lathair - Ball Aluinn is feasta is go brath."
