Built to commemorate the deceased Bishop Gillooly who was a campaigner against alcohol. The interior is classic victorian – polished mahogany and leaded glass. The exterior is grim and foreboding, and reminiscent of many a presbytery or small religious institution around Ireland. The statue depicts the Bishop denouncing Ireland – “Ireland sober is Ireland free”.
