1790 – St. John the Baptist’s Church, Cashel, Co. Tipperary

Architect: John Roberts / Walter G. Doolin



Designed by John Roberts the original structure of this church dates from the late-eighteenth century while the tympanum and other so-called embellishments were added by W.G Doolin in 1890. Our illustration shows the church without the gilded mosaic tympanum in the main pediment, and so predates Doolin’s work. Doolin also closed up the central window and replaced it with further mosaic work. There is a fine galleried interior with sacristy fittings by Doolin including a marble pulpit of 1892. There was further interior work by S.F. Hynes in 1907. The church stands on the site of Cashel’s medieval franciscan friary.
