Building contractor and architect of Wexford town, active from the late 1850s or earlier until at least 1870. Robert Sinnott was the contractor for the private chapel built by Anthony Cliffe at Bellevue, Co. Wexford,(1) variously attributed to AUGUSTUS WELBY NORTHMORE PUGIN and JAMES JOSEPH MCCARTHY , and is credited with the design of the Catholic church at Rathangan, Co. Wexford (1870-73).(2) He is presumably the 'Robert Sinnott, Architect' who was one of three candidates for the surveyorship of Wexford Town in July 1879, when EDWARD KIERAN RYAN was elected to the post.(3)
