1881 – Loreto Convent, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath

Architect: Ralph H. Byrne


Constructed in the Institutional Gothic style that is characteristic of buildings for religious congregations at this time. The use of plain rendered walls with cut stone detailing designed to be impressive and relatively inexpensive at the same time. Extended in the late 1920s by Ralph H. Byrne, who added the chapel wing and new corridor, music room and classrooms.
