Architect: G.C. Ashlin
Built in two phases, the monastery 1879-1880, and the church 1890-1892, both designed by G.C. Ashlin and finished in Newry granite. It by James McAdorey, a Belfast man who had settled in Dundalk. The contract was for £15,000.00. It is an austere building externally but the church interior is more elaborate.
