JAMES STREET LAGANVOOREN DROGHEDA
I must admit that until today I had never heard of Lagavooren.
Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, built by architect P. J. Dodd, closely resembles the design of Saint Peter’s Parish Church across the river to its north-west. It is a fine example of a late-Victorian interpretation of the French Gothic style. Elaborate carved detailing and an imposing rose window create an impressive and eye-catching north façade and the church is a focal point within an area composed largely of small residential structures. Fine detailing, tiling, painted decoration and stained glass by Lobin and Mayer add artistic interest.
