Agree that he’s definitely done some stunning work however, is there no one closer to home? Are there not lots of extremely talented Irish architects who could surely do a perfectly good job on restoring St. Mel’s to its former glory?… given the time & the money.

Who else has a perfect mastery of the theory of classical architecture and has actually put it into practice in large scale ecclesiastical projects?

The only other that I could think of is Quinlan Terry and his only ecclesiastical work has been in Brentwood Cathedral.

Unfortunately, no Irish firm has dislayed any interest in the classical tradition of late and I am afraid that the rebuliding of St Mel’s will require someone used to building more than hay-sheds.
