SCENES from IRELAND
15. The Lismore Area, County Waterford
The Lodge built by Arthur Kiely-Ussher, near Lismore. It, like the towers below, where built to impress his very demanding wife who wished to live in a large house to impress the 'local society'. The cost of this neo-Gothic architecture was so great, they ran out of money, so that the great house was never built. The lodge and towers stand as a 'folly' in every sense of the word!
The Ballysaggartmore Towers built by the Kiely-Ussher's, near Lismore.
The rebuilt Norman? nave and chancel arch of St Carthage's Lismore Cathedral (Church of Ireland) though most of the present structure was mainly built in 1633.
The Catholic Cathedral in Lismore built in the 'Italianate' style. ( see the Connelly Street Station in Dublin)
A beautiful flower garden just down from Lismore Catholic Cathedral.
The church of the Cistercian Nuns at Glencairn Abbey near Lismore, still a thriving community in the 21st century.
