1720 – St. Ann’s Church, Dawson St., Dublin

Architect: Isaac Wills


The original design for St. Ann’s Church, Dawson St., was never completed as designed here. Started in 1720, construction finished on the facade short of the eaves, and remained that way until William Murray suggested a design for a tower and spire in 1828. Thiswas never constructed, and nothing happened the incomplete facade until 1868. A new Lombardo-Romanesque facade was added to the church by Sir Thomas Newenham Deane, and this also, was never completed.
