Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Derry and Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. Charles McLaughlin appears to have been apprenticed to, or worked in the office of WILLIAM JAMES DOHERTY[2]  WILLIAM JAMES DOHERTY[2] at 12 Castle Street, Derry,(1) before he established his own practice in Letterkenny in 1931 or 1932. In 1932, together with Doherty, he was appointed by the Co. Donegal Board of Health to supervise the erection of 515 cottages in the county.(2) He was architect to the Co. Donegal Mental Hospital at Letterkenny from 1932(3) and Town Surveyor for Letterkenny Urban District Council probably from 1935, following the death of JOHN MCINTYRE JOHN MCINTYRE ,(4) until 1964(5) or later. As reflected in the pages of the Irish Builder, most of his work after the war consisted of public housing schemes for Donegal County Council and Letterkenny Urban District Council.

RIBA: elected licentiate, having been proposed by R.H. GIBSON  GIBSON and the President and Hon. Secretary of the RSUA under the provisions of Bye-law 3(a), 11 May 1931.(6) McLaughlin also used the initials AIAA after his name.
