Church of Saint Joseph

Roman Catholic Church

Saint Joseph's Catholic Church was designed by J.J. McCarthy, one of the foremost architects of the second half of the 19th Century in Ireland. A Gothic style building 150 feet long by 60 feet wide with a fine elegant spire is a significant landmark in the town of Carrickmacross. The Church was completed in 1866 and is the most impressive building in the town. It has ten beautiful stained-glass windows which were designed by the renowned artist Harry Clarke in 1925. C.J. McCarthy son of J.J. McCarthy completed the work in Saint Josephs on the death of his father in 1882. This included the completion of the tower and spire which is a prominent feature of the skyline of the surrounding countryside.
