Chapel of the Presentation Convent, Co. Waterford c.1906

This chapel was designed by architect Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-52). The Buildings of Ireland survey states that:

'The Presentation Convent in Waterford may rank as one of Pugin's lesser known Irish works but it is an important one nonetheless.  It bears close comparison to his Convent of Mercy (1841-50) in Handsworth, Birmingham, which predates it by only a few years, and to his ideal monastery plans as exemplified by the later Presentation Monastery (1846-62) in Killarney, County Kerry.'
