1865 – Church of the Sacred Heart, Arless, Co. Laois

Architect: Pugin & Ashlin


Fine gothic exterior with spire on an elevated site makes Pugin & Ashlin’s church at Arless a landmark in the local landscape. The interior has some original fittings, with more modern woodwork, not always sympathetic. The interior had a gallery inserted in the 1970s.
