Church of Saint Joseph

Roman Catholic Church

A freestanding double-height gable-fronted Early English Gothic Revival-style stone Roman Catholic church, built 1876 - 1887 under the direction of Canon McMahon (d.1883) as a new parish church to designs by the noted Dublin-based architect James Joseph McCarthy (1817 - 1882) (1). Sometimes called the "Irish Pugin," McCarthy was then engaged in the building of St. Macartan's Cathedral, Monaghan (1861 - 1892). Both of these works were completed after McCarthy's death, the latter to designs by William Hague Jr. (1840 - 1899) and St. Joseph's was likely either completed by McCarthy's office or local builders.
