Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Selected: CO. TIPPERARY, MULLINAHONE, CHURCH OF ST MICHAEL (RC)

Name: UNKNOWN ARCHITECT
Building: CO. TIPPERARY, MULLINAHONE, CHURCH OF ST MICHAEL (RC)
Date: 1850
Nature: New church at Mullinahone, 'erecting' for estimated cost of £1,400, is attributed to Patrick Byrne by The Builder, which describes it as similar to PB's church at Philipsburgh Strand, Dublin; however, local tradition dates the church from 1839.  Brendan Grimes doubts that PB designed Mullinahone parish church and suggests that the Church of the Immaculate Conception at Drangan (q.v.), also in the parish of Mullinahone, may have been the church intended in The Builder. The church was replaced by a new church in 1969.
