The architects were Burke O'Dea
Was the town centre built to this plan?
In layout yes, but without the â€œAztec Temple
â€ and the â€œhalf finished lower half of a Pyramid
â€œ appearance of buildings.
In the middle is the Shannon Development Headquarters. Today the Sky Court Shopping Centre takes up the heart of the town centre.
