Patrick Byrne (1783-1864)
W.H. Byrne (1844-1917)
1898 – Church of the Holy Redeemer, Bray, Co. Wicklow
Architects: Patrick Byrne, W.H. Byrne
Originally designed by Patrick Byrne in 1852, the church was heavily remodeled in 1898 by W.H. Byrne. Since then a new façade and tower have been added giving the church an almost schizophrenic personality. Viewing the façade leads the visitor to expect a mid 20th century interior, but the visitor gets a poor 19th century interior which is missing most of the original fixtures and fittings.
