Drimoleague Church-1956

Drimoleague Church

One of Frank Murphy’s finest buildings, Drimoleague Church sparked a period of notable design achievements and intensity in his work. Highly regarded as one of the best examples of the Modernist Movement in church building in the south of Ireland, the building was widely published at the time. The design disregarded the traditional forms associated with churches at the time with a distinctly modern external arrangement of rectangular shapes. Large saw-tooth stained glass windows, tall belfry and the altar block dominate the view of the church from the town. Unobstructed views of the altar were the governing factors in the design of the interior space, with functionality being a core principle
