1880 – St Raphael’s College, Loughrea, Co. Galway

Architect: J.J. O’Callaghan


Former Convent of Mercy complex, now is use as a school. Later wing by W.H. Byrne & Son. The chapel is now in use as school sports hall. Quite a grim institutional feel to the building, the short tower doing nothing to uplift the design.
