1878 – St Mary’s Cathedral, Tuam, Co. Galway

Architect: Thomas Newenham Deane



This, the third Cathedral to be built in Tuam, was built on the site of the first cathedral and incorporated a Hiberno-Romanesque arch that remained onsite. The building is 150 ft. long, and the transepts 75 ft. wide with a tower and spire over the crossing. The rounded chancel arch is of red sandstone, with six consecutive semi-circular arches of elaborately ornamented stonework supported on columns.
