1816 – Church of The Assumption, Callan, Co. Kilkenny


By an unknown architect, the catholic church in Callan dated from around 1816. A stern classical exercise, it has fine columns on the west front with a rather unusual tower and spire. The building is fronted by twin gateways which complement the church itself, lending the whole a very formal air.
