Interior of the St. Mary's Church, Tagoat, Ireland, by A. W. N. Pugin

Church of St. John the Baptist, Bellevue, Ireland by A. W. N. Pugin (constructed after his death). This church originally served as the private stand-alone chapel of the Cliffe family at the now-demolished Bellevue House. It follows the same design and plan as the chapel for Sir James and Lady Power at Edermine House, Edermine.
