Not Gothic revival but still of interest….

From Limerick Leader
Jesuit Church in €3m sale?


THE Jesuit Sacred Heart Church on the Crescent will be put up for sale by the end of January and could be sold for up to €3m.

Auctioneers overseeing the sale have told the Limerick Leader that once the final touches on the sale documents have been completed that they will begin their marketing campaign on the historic city centre building.

And industry sources say that the premises could fetch up to €3 million when it is put up for sale on the open market.

Des O’Malley, of Sherry Fitzgerald O’Malley Auctioneers on O’Connell St said: “We haven’t received the final instructions on the sale yet and are still putting the final touches to the brochures on the premises, but we are expecting it to be put on the open market in late January. Because of this we cannot confirm at what valuation the premises will be placed on the market.”

“There will be three lots-the Jesuits residence will be lot one, the church will be lot two, and the entire building consisting of the residence and church will be lot three,” Mr O’Malley explained.

The auctioneers paid a number of visits to the Jesuit premises in December to take measurements and to place an estimated value on the building. They presented a report on their work to the Jesuit order in late December and Mr O’Malley said that they are expecting major interest in the property from the public and private sector.

“Given the nature of the lot, we are expecting a lot of interest. The residence is an interesting building and is the size of two Georgian houses so it may be a good business structure. The future use of the church depends on what people could reasonable foresee it being used for,” he said.
