1863 – Saint Brigid’s Church, Killeshandra, Co. Cavan

Architect: William Hague


Incomplete as designed and illustrated, Hague’s fantastically ornate spire wasn’t constructed and was capped off at the top of a simplified version of the tower. Finished in local stone with limestone dressing. Internally the massive seven lancet eastern window has the central lancet closed up to carry a crucifix. The interior is much remodeled. Published in The Builder, November 15 1862.
