1882 – St. Joseph’s Church, Boyle, Co. Roscommon

Architect: Goldie & Child


Constructed from 1875-1882. Built in the Gothic style, it had a magnificent pitch pine, hammerbeam roof, and a striking rose stained glass window above the altar. The reredos were impressive and contained statues of the four evangelists and there were side altars dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to St. Joseph. The church was burned down in 1977, and a new church constructed on the site.
