St Patricks Monastery

Conversion of a former school to a chapel

Location: Co. Galway

This building forms part of a monastery complex at Esker near Athenry, Co. Galway. The building was originally built as a schoolhouse in the mid C.19th but was used as a machinery shed for most of the C.20th.  The brief was to create a chapel and prayer room that offered flexibility of use for retreats.
