1871 – Holy Cross Dominican Church, Tralee, Co. Kerry

Architect: Pugin & Ashlin


Uncomplete, as the expected donations to complete the spire did not materialise. The interior has a lovely wooden roof supported by tall arches on marble shaft columns. The east end has fine stained glass and mosaic decoration. Lots of the original fixtures and fitting remain intact.

Described by The Dublin Builder before construction in 1866 as “The design will be observed to have some novelty and boldness, especially in the composition of the tower and spire ; much thoughtful care is evinced in all the details.”
