1877 – Church of the Sacred Heart, Dunlewey, Co. Donegal

Architect: Timothy Hevey


Completed in 1877, this remote church was designed by architect Timothy Hevey and built by James McAdorey from Belfast, in a ‘Hiberno-Romanesque’ style. It has a spectacular location, nestled between the majestic Mount Errigal and the waters of Lough Nacung Upper. One of the architect’s last works as he died at the young age of 32 a year later, in 1878.
