1845 – St Patrick’s Church, Ballyragget, Co. Kilkenny
The architect of Ballyragget Church, William Deane Butler, was responsible for quite a few churches in the Diocese of Ossory. He also designed the Cathedral and the Diocesan College. An unusual exterior that appears to be unfinished, masks an interior that changes from a severe stone arcades between the nave and aisles to more elaborate Gothick plaster work on the vaulted ceiling.
