It would be a very good idea to do something on mcCarthy and his followers, including Joseph Connolly who, although most of his work is in Canada, undoubtedly belongs to to the canon of Irish 19th. century architects. Apart from the article in the Ecclesiological Society, I remember reading about his churches in Canada in an article published in the Irish Arts Review (possibly in the period before it became a “Yearbook”) but I do not have it to hand.
The Apse in the Immaculate Conception in Guelph is practically a verbatim quotation of the apse of the College Chapel in Maynooth. Even that curious chimney stack attached to the apse has quite close cousins in JJ. McCarthy’s Senior Infirmary (1861) at Maynooth College.
