Pugin in Enniscorthy

I was in Enniscorthy today for a meeting I had organized for a Wexford group. It was very successful, TG.

Later, as I passed, I visited the Cathedral in the town. It is one of Augustus Pugin's (1812-1852) finest creations. Pugin rejected the bland post-Industrial Revolution public structures to revive the elaborate, highly ornate Gothic style of the 13th and 14th centuries. In Ireland most of his works are here in the Wexford area - his patron the Earl of Shrewsbury was connected with Wexford.

The Enniscorthy Cathedral is surely a beautiful church now restored as visualised by Pugin.
