1868 – Magdalen Asylum Chapel, Leeson St., Dublin

Architect: Rawson Carroll


Later facade and tower added to earlier chapel for the Magdalen Asylum at the foot of Leeson Street. The slate spire with cast-iron applied decoration was a local landmark until the site was cleared in the 1960s by Irish Sugar to build their hq to a design by Boyle Delaney.
