  1. St. Patrick’s Campus, DCU by Andy Devane - part 2

    15 Jul 2022

    St Patrick’s Campus (DCU) is unique on so many levels. Architecture and its scale are very human-friendly. Also, everything is kept in beautiful condition. Well done to anyone who is responsible for that.  In this photo presentation, we are moving to students’ residences, just beside office buildings which you can…


  2. St. Aengus’ Church in Burt

    24 May 2022

    My journey came to an end so this is the last post regarding Liam McCormick and his Donegal Churches. I left a space and the final presentation for probably the most recognisable building out of all seven. St Aengus’ Church in Burt, 1964-67   4x5 Pinhole camera with Ilford FP4+ exposed…


  3. Star of the Sea Church in Desertegney

    19 May 2022

    I am slowly approaching the end of my ‘pilgrimage’ and thus the presentation of its fruits - photography.  There are two more churches to visit - in my humble opinion the most interesting of the five I have seen this short rainy weekend. These also, belong to a small group…


  4. St. Patrick’s Church in Murlog

    14 May 2022

    My journey continues. Fortunately, it has stopped raining. It’s still cloudy, but the day looks good My next stop is Murlog and McCormick’s second oldest church after Milford. Built between 1962-64 and altered in 1994, truly large scale, built on a polygonal cruciform plan St. Patrick’s Church.  Impressive structure as…


  5. St. Peter’s Church in Milford

    10 May 2022

    It started to rain again when I was still in front of Donoughmore Presbyterian Church in Liscooley. I quickly run to the car and slowly moved towards Milford - My next location.  After about 45 minutes I noticed a characteristic hexagonal tower emerging from between the buildings. It was St…


  6. Return to Liam McCormick’s Churches

    08 May 2022

    Two years ago I had a chance to see some of Liam McCormick’s work for the first time. Two out of seven Donegal Churches It was St Conal’s Church in Glenties and St Michael’s Church in Creeslough. Here is the link to the blog post I wrote back then: ‘Liam…


  7. Waiting for Dawn - first vision…

    24 Jan 2021

    Dusk is falling. The streets are getting empty. Only a few figures slip through the concrete maze. In the distance, you can hear the last murmurs of the day. The city is falling asleep… *** ‘Waiting for Dawn’ is a night walk through non-existent housing estates. The walk through the…


  8. Liam McCormick and sacral architecture

    23 Aug 2020

    I just spent a week in Donegal, the most incredible part of Ireland. Every year I try to spend some time travelling around the country and I am always amazed at how beautiful it is. The landscape here is unreal.  But Ireland is not just a landscape. It’s also beautiful…


  9. Texaco House

    29 May 2020

    The weather is fantastic these days, so I’m trying to take advantage of it. Not only by cycling to my new favourite swimming spot but also by photographing Dublin and its architecture more often than usual In such illumination and through a red filter, everything looks simply wonderful. With intense…


  10. Inchicore Vocational School - stairs

    22 May 2020

    I have been photographing Dublin and its architecture for over a decade, but I have to admit that there are still many places that I need to discover and explore. It is a wonderful process that takes place in stages. Some time must pass between them. Often quite long Reading…


  11. Dublin suburb libraries

    09 May 2020

    Photographing Ringsend Public Library, helped me to realise how very interesting these small beautiful buildings are. Following the same path, I visited the remaining three I mentioned in the post last week.  Updated restrictionists allowed me to move around Dublin a bit further at last, and I decided to use…


  12. Ringsend Public Library

    30 Apr 2020

    Last week, I thought it would be a good idea to photograph an interesting building from my favourite period (or around that time), which in architecture was called modern movement. It is supposed to be something that I haven’t photographed yet, or I didn’t pay much attention to. Not an…


  13. Church of the Annunciation

    20 Mar 2020

    Church of the Annunciation in Finglas West is one of the biggest churches in Dublin. It was designed by David Keane (David Keane & Partners, later KMD Architecture) in 1967. A massive building with a capacity of 3500 people (!). Large scale structure with impressive concrete roof. Stephen Walsh designed…


  14. In Memoriam…

    15 Feb 2020

    This text was supposed to be about something else. Due to unexpected circumstances, however, I decided to change the subject.  Paul Koralek, cofounder of renowned architectural practice Ahrends, Burton, Koralek Architects (ABK Architects), passed away a few days ago.  I had a chance to meet him while working at ABK…

    As I promised in the previous post, I will do my best to fill this space with text frequently. From now on you can expect new articles every weekend. To do that this blog will turn into a form of a diary from time to time. I will continue to…
