1829 – Courthouse, Monaghan, Co. Monaghan

Architect: Joseph Welland



The Courthouse was probably designed by Joseph Welland and cost around £10,000. A fine building constructed from large blocks of yellowish stone and placed on a plinth of ten steps. The main façade has a strong pediment and coat of arms carried by half fluted doric columns. Originally three doorways opened into the interior – two were converted to windows. The stonework throughout is very good with a heavily rusticated ground floor. The building is flanked by two demi-hexagonal archways. The twin courtrooms inside are lit by three round headed windows in the sides of the building. The building was destroyed by fire during the 1980s and has now been fully restored.
