1934 – Design for National Cathedral, Merrion Square, Dublin

Architect: L.F. Dowling


In 1930 the Archdiocese of Dublin bought the park in Merrion Square from the Fitzwilliam estate, intending to build a new cathedral. It never came to be, but several sketch designs were produced during the early 1930s. In the 1970s, the park was sold to Dublin Corporation.
